  • 175g butter, softened



    Butter is made when lactic-acid producing bacteria are added to cream and churned to make an…

  • 85g golden caster sugar
  • 200g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 100g chocolate chips, milk or dark


  1. Mix the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon. Stir in the flour and cocoa, followed by the chocolate chips – you’ll probably need to mix it together with your hands at this stage. Halve the dough and roll each piece into a log about 5cm thick. Wrap in cling film and chill for 1 hr or for several days. Can be frozen for up to 1 month.

  2. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Slice logs into 1cm-thick rounds, transfer to a baking tray lined with baking parchment and bake for 10-12 mins. Cool on the tray.

Absolutely delicious! That's the end of buying shop-bought shortbread for me :) I made 1.4 times the quantity (as I couldn't be bothered to weigh the butter and used a 250g block). Made 21 biscuits which, I expect, will be gone by this evening!

made these with my 2yr old son. after putting them in the fridge for a good 2 hours the mixture was still very creamy which made cutting them impossible so had to shape by hand, cooked well. the only problem is they are too moorish!!

I have made these again and again. They are so easy - i just chuck everything in at once. If you freeze the uncooked circles of cookie dough you can cook from frozen and get the same yummy results. Perfect for home cooked treats and the drop of a hat - or should i say visitor!

Mine are a bit too buttery, not sure if that's bad measurements, but otherwise great.

Delicious and easy. I make mine with white chocolate chunks for the colour contrast, and the fact that you can freeze some of the batch makes it ideal -I can keep the biscuit jar topped up with minimal effort. Good recipe for anyone new to home baking. Don't worry if the dough crumbles - it will cook out fine.

Very easy and very nice! Convenient to split the dough in half and keep a bit to have fresh cookies later! Lovely dipped in milk. Only 4 stars because I found the dough a bit sandy...
