Lemon Drizzle Shortbread

This shortbread is incredibly short, crumbly and melts in your mouth with each bite you take. You could easily omit the lemon zest and juice for a decadent shortbread, but the freshness of the lemon really gives it that unique taste.


For the shortbread:

250g Butter

125g Caster Sugar

250g Plain Flour

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder

150g Chocolate Chips (this isn’t needed, but chocolate is a MUST for me)

1 Lemon zested

For the drizzle:

4 teaspoons of icing sugar

1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 190C.
  2. Combine the butter and sugar, until it lightens in colour slightly.
  3. Add the flour, baking powder, chocolate chips, lemon zest.
  4. Grease a cookie sheet and spoon on the dough.
  5. Cook for 12-15 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool.  Mix together the icing sugar lemon juice and drizzle over the cookies.
  7. Enjoy!
