4 scrumptious shortbread recipes

Dunking a biscuit into a steaming cup of tea is one of life's greatest pleasures – a well-earned break from the hustle of everyday life. It's even more of a treat when you've made the biscuit yourself.

These four recipes offer a range of biscuit recipes; from chocolatey delights to cherry shortbread and even heart-shaped kisses, you could indulge in a different biscuit every day of the week! 

Cherry Shortbread

Lines of glacé cherries add a fruity twist to this classic biscuit. This is a handy recipe too; if you store it in an airtight container it will keep for at least two weeks. 

Thyme and walnut shortbread

Mix things up with this herby and nutty take. The sweet thyme complements the slightly bitter walnuts in this shortbread recipe. You can swap the walnuts for almonds or pecans, if you prefer. 

Heart Kisses

Wear your heart on your plate with these heart-shaped creations. Filled with strawberry jam and whipped cream, these buttery shortbread treats make an ideal gift for loved ones (or for yourself!).

Billionaires Shortbread

It would be wrong to leave out a chocolatey recipe, and this one is truly jazzy! Topped with caramel and chocolate, this billionaire's shortbread has a fancy finish: a dusting of gold. Fancy!
