This chocolate shortbread recipe is delicious and easy to make.
To make 12 of these you will need:
- 300g unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 220g (1 cup) caster sugar
- 375g (2 1/2 cups) plain flour
- 5 tbs cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- Icing sugar, to dust
Grease and line base and sides of a 18cm x 28cm lamington pan. Beat butter and sugar in a bowl with electric beaters until pale. Sift in flour, cocoa and soda and beat slowly until just combined. Spread in pan and smooth with a spatula. Prick all over with a fork. Chill for 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan oven). Cook the shortbread for 25 minutes or until firm to touch. While it’s still hot, use a knife to score it into 12 rectangles. Cool slightly, then remove from pan and cut into 12 pieces. Dust the chocolate shortbread with icing sugar before serving.
