    About this recipe: A yummy, melt-in-your mouth, cinnamon spiced spin on the traditional Scottish shortbread.

    Serves: 16 

    • 155 g all-purpose flour

    • 1 g ground cinnamon
    • 115 g butter

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 160 C.
    2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, white sugar and cinnamon. Cut or rub in the butter until the mixture is like fine crumbs.
    3. Pack the crumbs into a ball, then knead by hand until smooth.
    4. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out into an 20cm circle. Place the circle on a baking sheet, and slice into 16 wedges. Leave the circle intact.
    5. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until the center has set. Cut the circle into wedges again while it is still warm and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

    Very easy. Very morish. And too easy to eat the whole lot! I find all butter shortbread too greasey for me so this is perfect as its not too buttery. I added All spice for a Xmas feel. NUMMEH!!!!  -  17 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    Altered ingredient amounts. I make these ith half white and half brown flour so they turn out little more brown and people love that as they look more like brown suger shortbread. Plus they are just that little bit more healthy.  -  18 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
