My latest adventure in cookies... Wink

Choc Chip Shortbread



Ingredients
250g Butter
60g Castor sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 Cups+ 4 TBsp Plain flour
4 TBsp Rice flour
120g Chocolate Chips

Method
1. Pre-heat the oven to 190C.
2. Sift together plain flour and rice flour several times, set aside.
3. Beat butter, sugar and essence using mixer until light and fluffy.
4. Stir in sifted flours and chocolate chips.
5. Put the dough on slightly floured surface and knead lightly until smooth.
6. Take rounded teaspoon of dough and roll it into a ball with you palm. Place the balls about 3cm apart on a baking tray.
7. Use a fork to flatten the balls.
8. Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 12 - 15 mins or until lightly browned.
9. Let it stand in the tray for 2 minutes. Then, transfer to wire racks to cool.

Note: If you prefer to use cookie cutter, you can also do this. After step (5), wrap the dough with cling wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Then, roll dough between 2 sheets of greaseproof paper to 8mm thick, use cookie cutter to cut and place it on baking tray.

Rgds, Connie

This is my first attempt too! As this is shortbread, it is not soft and chewy. Mine is crispy. Seriously, I do not if the texture will be different if the dough is put in the fridge for 30 minutes and then roll and shape. I was too lazy to roll and cut the dough. So, I did my own way. Embarassed

Thanks for pointing it out. I did not know of the mistake. I have edited my recipe. I am going to make this for CNY too!

1) Sift together 2 Cups Plain flour + 4 TBsp Plain Flour + 4 TBsp Rice Flour several times.
2) I have never tried to bake using white choc chips. I supposed you can substitute if you prefer white choc chips.

Just for your information, rice flour and cornflour or custard powder can be interchange for making shortbread. However, rice flour will give a finer texture.

Regards, Connie

hi connie

I made yr shortbread yesterday. The taste is buttery n smell very heavenly. only the problem is the dough was very soft and difficult to get a round shape like yours. i used white choco chip and it taste nice.

thanks alot connie for sharing this recipe. it a must keep for me.

Glad you like it. Yah, the dough is soft. I normally just make it into small round like making "tang yuan".
