coffee shortbread with chocolate drizzle.

shopping list
♥ 225g plain wholemeal flour
♥ 125g cornflour
♥ 125 light muscovado sugar

♥ 2 teaspoons of expresso
♥ 225 butter, cut into pieces

i found this gorgeous coffee shortbread recipe on bakingmad.com - and would definitely recommend! this was actually my first time making shortbread and found it surprisingly easy. will be making it again too so any other recipes send them my way.


in the recipe it suggests covering coffee beans in chocolate and scattering them on top. i slightly adapted this to just drizzle melted chocolate on top as i prefer a lighter coffee flavour and didn't want the beans to overpower. 
i also don't have a food processor at the moment so i crumbled the flour and butter by hands. a little more effort but definitely worth it. i would also suggest buying these expresso pots, actually made for a machine, which are great for if you only use expresso powder for cooking. 

i'm more of a cup of tea kinda girl! something which definitely went with this shortbread.





you can find the full recipe and other brilliant ideas for cakes, savoury treats and cupcake recipes over at bakingmad.com. enjoy!
