I love buttery shortbread, whether it's with a cup of tea or a delicious coffee. Sometimes less is more. Nevertheless, I was curious as to whether I could add a simple twist to my shortbread. And the result was this chocolate version.

Shortbread dough

Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until the mixture becomes lighter in colour. Combine the flour, cocoa powder and salt, mix into the butter mixture and combine to form a soft dough. Roll out the dough into a rectangle (approx. 4 mm thick) between two sheets of baking paper, chill for approx. 30 mins.


Cut the dough into approx. 30 rectangles, score with a wooden skewer, sprinkle with cane sugar, press down gently. Place the rectangles on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

To bake

Approx. 10 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 180°C. Remove from the oven, slide the shortbread onto a cooling rack, leave to cool.

Good to know
Shelf life: Store the shortbread in an airtight container for approx. 1 week.
Tip: Instead of cutting the shortbread into rectangles, you can also cut it using your favourite cookie cutters.
