Christmas Shortbread

We had a proper party for the work Christmas do. Like play pool, drink exorbitant amounts of beer, skulk to bed at 5am party. So, me being me, I brought shortbread along! I really know how to bring the fun to the party.

You could say that it is funtastic shortbread! Too lame…?

I don’t want to toot my own horn, but this shortbread is the best. It’s incredibly soft, melt in your mouth shortbread. It’s adorable Christmas shortbread. It could even be easy last minute gift shortbread.

I jazzed mine up just a little bit with some melted chocolate and it was pretty cute. It also melts in the car if you are having the hot Christmas we are having down in middle earth, so be careful of that.
