Shortbread is synonymous with the holiday season; a great giftable treat, cookie swap staple and must-have for seasonal dessert table spreads. Your grandmother’s classic recipe is great, but to really impress friends, family and coworkers level up these unleavened cookies with the addition of your favourite Lindt chocolate.
These sweet shortbread Christmas trees speckled with finely chopped Lindt SWISS CLASSIC Milk Chocolate and a hint of mint can be festively decorated with sprinkles, dragées and garlands of icing.
How do you enhance an already perfect traditional shortbread recipe? Use cookie cutters in fun, festive shapes and incorporate your favourite flavour of LINDOR Chocolate Truffles cut in half as toppers.
Few flavour combinations compare to sweet and savoury. This shortbread recipe is updated with diamonds of Lindt EXCELLENCE 70% Dark Chocolate and crunchy bits of Maldon sea salt, but of course you can use any flavour of your favourite EXCELLENCE bars.
