Happy World Chocolate Day! To celebrate, I came up with this really simple, gluten free and vegan shortbread recipe. I’m Scottish so obviously love a bit of shortbread! For this recipe, I used the Pacari orange chocolate but you could pretty much use any flavour for this! I’ll definitely be trying out some other flavours because it’s so simple and tasty!
250g gluten free plain flour blend
120g dairy free butter
Pinch of salt
40g chopped Pacari chocolate (or you could use the Pacari chocolate chips)
Zest of half an orange
Lightly grease a tart tin with dairy-free butter or a vegetable spray oil and preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
Cream together the butter and sugar then slowly add the flour, orange zest and salt and mix until large clumps start to form in the dough.
Stir through the chocolate pieces and gently press the mixture evenly into the tart tin. Pierce the surface of the shortbread with a fork (to let the air out) and pop in the oven for approx. 20 minutes until the edges start to turn golden brown.
Cut into slices when the shortbread is still slightly warm and enjoy with a cuppa!
