Shortbread is brilliant for several reasons including the fact it can be made up of many different combinations of nuts, fruits and spices, just pick your favourite combination. I’ve used pistachios and cranberries for their colour as well as taste and added some classic xmas spice with some orange zest and cinnamon.

Even better they’re quick to make, can be prepared ahead and just need 20-30 minutes in the oven. They can be bagged up or stacked and wrapped for homemade Xmas presents or even hung on your Xmas tree 🙂
