With the holidays just around the corner, it’s about time we get baking — and in our humble (and hungry) opinion, there is no better way to enjoy traditional holiday flavours than with buttery, crumbly shortbread. Luckily, there are a multitude of ways to devour everyone’s festive favourite. From classic to citrus-infused to pecan-chocolate to peppermint… your sweet tooth will be overwhelmed for all the right reasons.
Chocolate Shortbread and Raspberry Napoleons
Juicy raspberries and rich swirls of pastry cream are layered between pieces of chocolate shortbread, forming a decadent napoleon stack. Finish with a dusting of icing sugar for a truly show-stopping dessert.
Caramel Chocolate Shortbreads
Simple shortbread is transformed into a decadent treat by topping it with layers of caramel, chocolate and toasted coconut. The secret to this easy recipe is mini chocolate chips that melt right into the cookie base.
Vanilla Bean Spritz Shortbread
These lovely cookies are sure to impress your guests. The elegant detailing can be achieved with a star-shaped tip on a piping bag or with a cookie press.
Scottish Pan Shortbread
Why settle for one shortbread cookie when you can have an entire pan? This recipe bakes one giant treat that can be sliced into wedges to be enjoyed over a few days (if you’re lucky).
Vegan Shortbread Cookies
Think shortbread requires butter to be melt-in-your mouth delicious? Think again. This dairy-free recipe shows you how to make them fully vegan.
This tender pan shortbread gets a double shot of nuttiness with both almond extract and whole almonds. For an elegant finish, use a fluted pan.
Keto Almond Shortbread Cookies
These keto-friendly and gluten-free cookies are made with almond extract, sliced almonds and almond flour, giving them an extra nutty flavour, while cream cheese and butter provide that tender shortbread texture.
Decorated Shortbread Cut-Out Cookies
Chocolate shortbread cookies are given a fun twist with cookie cutters and colourful icing. This is one dessert that’s as fun to make as it is to eat!
Strawberry Shortbread Jammy Bars
These shortbread bars are a far better use for classic strawberry jam than your morning toast. Sweet and super-buttery, they offer a taste of summer, anytime of year. Switch up the jams with what you love and make these your own.
