Scottish Recipes - Strawberry Shortbread Creams

Strawberry Shortbread Creams

Today I wanted to make some Shortbread

I had already made classic shortbread a few months back see here

So I decided to go with a different recipe in one of my many British cookbooks, this shortbread calls for orange peel, yummy

Strawberry Shortbread Creams.  They taste as good as they sound

Makes 6

You will need

175g/6oz Plain/All purpose Flour
