As long as I can bake & have a catering diploma, I have been making everything myself in the kitchen. Think of cheese onion breads, emperor rolls, sausage rolls and so much more!

Now that Christmas is around the door and a new lockdown has arrived, this is a super fun and easy recipe to keep you busy for yourself or possibly with your children?

Backing shortbread cookies:

Shortbread is actually a standard recipe, but you can make them a little more festive at Christmas. With this recipe you can easily make them yourself and what could be better than that.


  • 185 grams of butter (at room temperature)

  • 125 grams of white caster sugar.

  • ½ lemon zest.

  • ¼ Teaspoon of salt.

  • 250 grams of flour.

  • ½ egg.

You will also need:

  • Flower for the counter.

  • ½ beaten egg.

  • Step 1.

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix into a cohesive dough.

  • Step 2.

Wrap the dough in fresh cling film and let it travel in the fridge for 1 hour.

  • Step 3.

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees. Knead the dough briefly. Roll it out on a floured work surface to a thickness of 4-6 millimeters.

  • Step 4.

Cut or cut the cookie shapes and place the cookies with sufficient space on a baking tray lined with baking paper. You can roll out the dough that is left over and cut it out again.

  • Step 5.

Brush the biscuits with the beaten egg and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Let the cookies cool on a rack.

Enjoy your meal :) !
