BOOKISH BITES: Lemon Drizzle Shortbread

DSC_1085

I love shortbread and I love lemon drizzle, so I decided to combined the two in one tasty treat. I found a basic shortbread recipe on BBC Good Food, adding lemon zest to the batter and then made a drizzle from the juice and sugar. I was worried the drizzle would make the shortbreads too moist and they would crumble apart but after leaving them to cool and dry they were ready to eat. The sharpness of the lemon combined well with the sweet dough – they seemed to go down well with everyone else as well!
