Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is for Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies and Shortbread Cookies. I used a traditional shortbread recipe, and then doubled the mixture to make a chocolate chip version. Shortbread are my favourite biscuit and they couldn't be easier to bake at home.

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Plain Flour
2. Cornflour 
3. Butter
4. Caster Sugar
5. Milk Chocolate Chips

Bismillah, let's begin!

Place 8 ounces plain flour in a large bowl.

Add 4 ounces cornflour.

Stir to combine.

Add 8 ounces butter, in cubes.

Rub in with your fingertips.

Add 4 ounces caster sugar.

Stir to combine.

Place half of the mixture on to a surface.

Knead the mixture lightly until it forms a smooth dough. The warmth from your hands will bring the dough together.

Place the dough onto cling film.

Roll into a sausage shape, and wrap in the cling film. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to chill.

With the other half of the mixture ..

Add 1 bag milk chocolate chips.

Stir to combine.

Place onto a surface.

Knead lightly until it forms a smooth dough.

Place onto cling film.

Wrap in the cling film, and roll into a sausage shape. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 3.
Slice the shortbread into slices.

Slice the chocolate chip shortbread into slices.

Place onto a lined baking tray.

Bake in a preheated oven at Gas Mark 3 for 35 minutes until pale golden brown.

Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack.

These buttery biscuits will become a firm family favourite.

They are also great packaged up as gifts for any occasion.
