125g   Butter

180g   Plain Flour

30g     Corn Flour

60g     Caster Sugar

100g   Slivered or Flaked Almonds

Vanilla to taste, I use a good glug , about 10mL

Soften butter (I usually do this in the microwave).

Stir in the sugar, add vanilla.

Stir in the flours. I don’t sift the flours, but feel free to add that step if it makes you feel better.

Stir in the almonds.

Roll the mixture into walnut size balls and place on baking tray. Press the balls slightly flat with the prongs of a dinner fork.

Bake in a low-moderate oven for about 20 minutes until slight colour change, as for any shortbread recipe.

Allow to cool before dipping in your favourite melted chocolate. I use a bag of “no-name” choc-bits melted in the microwave with a small piece of copha.      This gives a hard setting consistency.





I usually make a double quantity as they don’t last very long!!!!!!!!!
