  • 200g Plain Flour
  • 25g Corn Flour
  • Zest of 1 Orange
  • 1 tsp Orange Extract

  • Pre-heat your oven to 180°c (160°c for fan-assisted ovens or Gas Mark 3) and grease a couple of baking trays with a little butter.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and caster sugar until it becomes light and fluffy. Add the orange zest, orange extract & chocolate chips and mix until combined.
  • Sift in the flour and cornflour and mix to form a stiff dough, using your hands if necessary. Tip the dough onto a lightly floured worktop and gently knead until smooth.

  • Bake in your pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes until the edges of the shortbread are golden.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle a little sugar over each shortbread. Leave to cool on tray for around 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
