shortbread recipe/easy short bread
Shortbread is a type of cookie or biscuit and is a great tea time snack . These short breads have bready nature with crumbly texture.The basic shortbread recipe contains only three ingredients sugar,flour and butter using this many variations can be made . Here I have added apple and khova for the dough as a variation.Am not that much familiar with short breads before and I had just heard the word through books and media’s , so I was in an urge learning more about it and ready for the research .
Finally I learnt the basic recipe of making short bread.Now I have my own version of making short breads which I have shared below.Short breads are not crispy and it is basically white in nature.If we do not have khova we can use milk powder or condensed milk.Powdered or castor sugar is used and granulated is not used.Can check out my homemade khoa or khova recipe here and prepare your own khova . There is no need to add baking powder for making this soft and buttery shortbread.The dough mixture is rested for half an hour before rolling.I have used mixed fruit jam for topping ,but any suitable jam can be used.I have used pistachio nut powder both in the dough and for the topping.
