Cherry Topped Shortbread Cookies Recipe

My first recipe of 2019!
And it was definitely a using up of ingredients kind of recipe, I had lots of cherries left after making rudolph noses so I had a think of how best to use them. Glace cherries always remind me of Cherry Bakewell and I really wanted to get that taste into something new and the Cherry Topped Shortbread Cookies were created

Cherry Topped Shortbread Cookies

You Will Need:
  • 260g Plain Flour
  • 230g Butter
  • 130g Icing sugar

  • Glace Cherries to top
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  2. Cream butter and sugar together
  3. Sift together the flour and cornstarch
  4. Slowly add your flour mixture to your butter mixture, add the almond extract
  5. The dough should be quite stiff once it's combined
  6. Add to a piping bag and pipe discs, leave enough space for them to expand 
  7. Bake for 15 minutes
  8. They will be slightly soft when you take out of the oven, top with half a glace cherry (or a full one if you're greedy like me and allow to cool
