Baking favourite past time

Its been awhile since i posted ,been back at work after a super holiday but im off it is Monday so i decided to bake chunky chocolate shortbread biscuits. I got a book dedicated to all different types of cookies and biscuits, savoury and sweet,from my lovely friend Bella. I hadn't had the chance to try it i did.They are really easy and not too expensive to make,here is the recipe.


1 cup butter
1/4 cup castor sugar
1 3/4 cups plain flour
1 cup cornflour
1 slab of any chocolate (smashed up into chunky pieces)
icing sugar for dusting


Preheat the oven to 170 degrees.
Cream the butter and sugar until soft and pale in colour 
Sift the flour and cornflour and add to the butter, mix until a smooth dough forms.
Wrap in cling film and refrigerate for about 20 mins. 

Roll out the dough to about 1-1.5cm thickness on a lightly floured surface and cut into whatever shapes you can dream of,I chose stars and hearts.
Bake for about 20-30 mins until pale and golden.
Cool and dust with icing sugar..
Enjoy with a yum cup of tea.
