Scrumptious cinnamon flavoured shortbread biscuits made with clotted cream, wholemeal flour and a little chestnut flour. These wholemeal clotted cream shortbread will delight family and friends alike. They make perfect festive gifts too.
Well, Christmas is nearly upon us and this will be my last post now until next year. So I’m leaving you with these delicious Christmas shortbread biscuits.
Wholemeal Clotted Cream Shortbread
I usually make a ton of festive biscuits to gift to friends, family and neighbours, but I’ve been running really short of time this year. I made some gluten free chocolate pistachio biscotti and also some Christmas bliss balls a few days ago and thought that would be it. But Christmas really isn’t quite right without shortbread and I’ve still got nothing for the neighbours.
Luckily, I’ve just managed to squeeze in these wholemeal clotted cream shortbread, which I adapted from the Rodda’s clotted cream shortbread recipe. I made mine with wholemeal flour, a little chestnut flour and flavoured them with cinnamon. If you can’t get hold of chestnut flour, just use more of the regular flour.
Gosh, they’re good!. CT’s just come in and demolished several. I had to tell him to stop or there would be none left for the neighbours. The chestnut flavour is a little understated, but it does contribute to the rather lovely texture. Rodda lodda loveliness.
