Christmas Shortbread Slice with White Chocolate

Makes a lot Prep Time 20 minutes   Cook Time 30 minutes   Rated:

A pretty delish version of shortbread! Try this on for size and don't be afraid of adding anything to decorate. Christmas comes just once a year, luckily for our hips. This lasts and lasts in an airtight container and go for it with the decorations. It is pretty as a gift, and perfect if neighbours pop over or if you need to take something as a hostess gift last minute. (If you didn't devour it after making!) We suggest you make two batches for that reason!

Merry Christmas!
