Christmas Treats

There’s nothing nicer than receiving a foodie gift made with love – like these tasty vanilla shortbread.

Take some time out to make a few batches of this delicious shortbread and package them up in pretty boxes or in gift bags tied with festive ribbon and you’ll be welcome at any Christmas gathering!

These biscuits are a firm family favourite – my nieces and nephews will spend hours cutting them out and then decorating them. It’s a fun way to spend an afternoon!
