These shortbread biscuits are light and summery and made with butter and honey, a perfect treat to go with an afternoon tea, or to keep in the cookie jar.

Ingredients

  • 250g butter
  • 175g Rowse orange blossom honey, plus extra for drizzling
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 300g plain flour, plus more to dust
  • 125g cornflour or rice flour

Instructions

  1. Beat together the butter and honey until mixed together
  2. Sift the flour and cornflour together into a separate bowl to combine
  3. Add a 1/4 of it to the butter and slowly mix in using a spoon
  4. Add the rest of the flour a bit at a time until it forms a ball of dough - You don’t need to over beat this.
  5. Once it’s come together, bring it into a ball with your hands and wrap in cling film
  6. Leave in the fridge to chill for ½ hour
  7. Preheat the oven to 170ºC/fan 160ºC/340ºF/gas mark 31/2
  8. Once chilled, lightly flour a work surface and rolling pin
  9. Roll out the dough until 1 cm thick
  10. Using a biscuit cutter, whatever shape you like, cut out the biscuits and place onto a baking tray Roll up pastry and repeat until you have used it all up
  11. Place biscuits on a baking tray
  12. Pop trays into the oven for 15 -20 minutes or until a very light golden color on the bottom and top of the biscuit
  13. Sprinkle with extra caster while hot, then transfer to a wire rack to cool down
  14. I like to eat these with an extra drizzle of honey on top!
