@ddicted to Shortbread Hearts

Shortbread Hearts...anyone?!


250gm unsalted butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup rice flour
90 clear coloured boiled lollies

  1. Beat butter & sugar in a bowl until light & fluffy.
  2. Add sifted flours & mix well to form a soft dough. Divide dough into half. Cover with plastic wrap & refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 180C
  4. Roll half of dough between 2 sheets of baking paper until 5mm thick. Cut our hearts using a 7cm cutter. Place hearts about 3cm apart on baking tray lined with baking paper. Using a 4cm cutter, cut another heart from center of each heart.
  5. Re-roll hearts cut out with remaining dough.
  6. Bake for 5 minutes then place a boiled lolly in the center of each hearts. Bake for another 5 minutes or until lollies are melted & shortbread are lightly browned.
  7. Transfer the cookies together with baking paper onto a tray, cool on tray completely.

Hi anonymous,

You can refer to this blogger, she did a great job and take a lot of effort to do the conversion.
Hope this helps.
