- 200g plain flour
- 100g icing sugar
- 50g corn flour
- 50g ground almonds
- 250g butter
- 50g glace cherries, finely chopped
- Few drops of almond extract
Cut the butter into cubes. Sift flour, corn flour and icing sugar together. Stir in the ground almonds. Rub in the butter using your fingertips until the mixture resembles crumbs, then stir in the almond extract and cherries. Bring the mixture together with your hands.
Sift some flour or icing sugar onto your work surface and use it to roll the shortbread out. Cut out biscuits, put onto a baking tray and bake in a 160C oven until lightly browned and crisp.
