This delicious Mexican shortbread with cinnamon and toasted almonds is quick and easy to make - literally 20 minutes from start to completion.
Ingredients
  • ½ Cup Plain flour
  • 1 Cup Self raising flour
  • ½ Cup Toasted almonds
  • ¼ Cup Brown sugar
  • 150g Butter, softened and cubed
  • 1 Egg
  • ¼ Cup Caster sugar mixed with 1 Tsp ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Place the all purpose flour, self raising flour, brown sugar, toasted almonds, softened butter and egg in your food processor.
  2. Using the pulse action, process this until a dough comes together. This shouldn't take longer than a minute.
  3. Rub a little oil on your baking sheet, place a sheet of baking paper on top of this, then oil the baking paper. This protects the sheet against the cinnamon sugar later in the recipe.
  4. Using a tablespoon measure, take a level tablespoon of the dough and roll this into a ball. Center the ball the palm of your hand, then flatten this slightly between both palms. Place this on the baking sheet and continue until all 24 shortbreads are formed.
  5. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the biscuits then bake for 10 minutes in a preheated oven at 180c or 350f.
  6. Remove the shortbreads from the oven and transfer them to a wire rack to cool before serving.
