Skill Level: easy


225g Plain wholemeal flour

125g Cornflour

125g Unrefined light muscovado sugar

2tsp Espresso coffee

50g Dark chocolate broken into pieces

225g Butter (unsalted) cut into pieces

Chocolate covered coffee beans for the decoration


Preheat the oven to 190 C (170 C fan, gas mark 5). Put the flour and cornflour into a processor with the butter. Blend together to make crumbs

Add sugar and coffee granules and blend again until the mixture comes together to form a ball

Knead lightly onto a floured surface. Grease a 20cm square tin and press the shortbread into the tin. Press a fork around the edges to make a pattern and prick the surface several times with a fork.

Bake the shortbread for 20 minutes or until the shortbread is pale golden and cooked through.

Cool in the tin, then cut into 12 bars

Microwave the chocolate on high for 30 seconds or until just melted. Dip the base of chocolate covered coffee beans in the chocolate and arrange 3 on top of each coffee shortbread.
