I love BUTTER!!! I don't know if it's because I'm pregnant or if it's just because everything that's cooked with butter seems to take on a whole new life - and it's a deliciously amazing new life at that...
My latest sweet butter-y creation is this shortbread jam filled slice - YUM-MO!!!
This slice has the crunchiest, melt in your mouth texture that won't let you stop at just 1 piece - it must be that gooey, sweet, fruity centre that keeps me coming back for piece after piece - no, that's the pregnancy, LOL!!!
Jam Filled Shortbread Slice
1 cup of butter (I use salt that is salted for this recipe, I like the flavour it gives), 2 1/2 cups of plain flour, 1 cup of icing sugar, about 1/2 a jar of home-made jam (I used nectarine recipe here).
Process all ingredients, except that jam, in a food processor until a dough is formed this should only take about a minute (it will start to roll around like a ball in the bowl when it's ready).
Press half of the mixture into a standard slice tray, spread the jam over the top. You are now going to crumble the remaining dough mixture over the top of the jam.
Bake in an over at 180'C for about 30mins or until the edges are well browned and the house smells of sweet warm cookies...
Slice into pieces once cooled and enjoy with a fresh pot of your favourite tea....
