I first tasted these on holiday in the Alps, where they were served with glasses of chilled Champagne. The biscuits were just the most perfect, salty, savoury contrast to the light fruity flavour of t (Cheese Crackers)
With its light, buttery flavour and sugar-crystal sweetness, this shortbread is impossible to resist. You can flavour it if you like, adding a handful of chocolate chips or a sprinkling of finely chopped rosemary, or lavender to the dough as you knead it.
This rich, sweet shortcrust pastry is perfect for classic dessert tarts and pies. The recipe makes enough for a standard tart. You could make double the quantity, use whatever you need for your tart or pie and freeze the rest.
