That Shortbread Recipe the Internet is Peeing its Pants About.

shortbread cookies chocolate chip recipe
So first, there was this photo of said shortbread recipe on Bon Appetit Mag’s Instagram feed… and my initial reaction was. Cute.

Then as I fell down the internet rabbit hole, there was me, the sucker for a good, not even click bait, just friendly, nudging title that made me go… go on then…

The most satisfying part of this recipe, other than munching on cookies that were piping hot and burning my entire mouth in a weirdly delicious but arguably sadistic sugar rage. MMmmm…. burny, shortbread-y goodness with a bit of salt is just the only way to spend your scarily dark Berlin nights. Also… watch “the end of the f***ing world” on Netflix. It’s unbelievable how crazy the first sentences are… and pretty much the rest of the movie. So British, so good. Just like shortbread (bit more Scottish than the series, but still)
Get the recipe here – it’s completely perfect as it is. I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I have also created the grams and kilo version below, because my friends were all like “cups? WTF is a cup???”
European measurements:
  • 256g cold salted butter
  • 100g granulated sugar
  • 50g (packed) light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 282g plain flour
  • 170g semisweet or bittersweet dark chocolate, chopped (but not too fine, you want chunks, not thin shards of chocolate)
  • 1 large egg, beaten to blend
  • Demerara sugar (for rolling)
  • Flaky sea salt

Method is the same as here.

Enjoy – and remember, don’t burn your mouth.
