Chocolate chip shortbread recipe

This is literally the easiest recipe ever for the most mouth watering shortbread. If I can do it, anyone can...


115g butter & extra for greasing
115g plain flour
55g cornflour
55g golden caster sugar
40g chocolate chips 

  • Preheat oven to 160 Celsius
  • Grease a tin (9 inch loose bottom tin is recommended but clearly judging by the below photo, I didn't listen!) 
  • Sift the flour and cornflour into a large bowl
  • Stir in the sugar
  • Add the butter and rub it in until the mixture sticks together - that's the messy bit!
  • Add some chocolate chips into the mixture if you want them inside the shortbread too
  • Smooth mixture into tin and prick with a fork
  • Add some more chocolate chips over the top and push them in slightly (I used way more than 40g of chocolate chips!)
  • Bake for 35-40 mins until cooked but not browned. Okay I slightly overcooked mine!
  • Mark into portions, leave for 10 minutes to cool then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely
So there we have it (even if mine is slightly overcooked), the best shortbread ever!

Let me know if you give it a go yourself!

  2. I've got a recipe I use and I agree it it very messy on the hands! It is best to have everything to hand otherwise once you've for those hands messy you'll be messing up the whole kitchen looking for things! Amy x
