Christmas Shortbread Sandwiches

Claire’s tips for making your Christmas Shortbread Sandwiches:

  1. Once you make the dough put it in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes so the butter firms up and you will be able to roll it out much easier.
  2. Once rolled and cut into shapes put it back in the fridge to firm up again for 20 to 30 minutes especially if it is a hot/humid day.
  3. Don’t roll them too thin, shortbread are a thicker biscuit. Think of the thickness of the ones at the shops.
  4. Make your own healthy jam for the filling using this recipe for Chia Berry Jam.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180C and line two trays with baking paper.
  2. Use electric beater to cream the butter and Natvia until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and mix to combine.
  3. Use a spoon to stir through the almond meal, cornflour and rice flour.
  4. Roll the dough out onto a board until it’s approximately 1cm thick. Use a star shaped cookie cutter to cut out 20 stars. Place stars onto prepared trays, leaving some space between each to allow for spreading.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. Remove from oven and cool on tray for 10 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Spread 10 of the stars with ½ a teaspoon of jam and top with another star to make a sandwich.
  7. Serve one star sandwich per serve. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the pantry for 3-4 days.

Haven't got a star cutter? You can use any shaped cutter you have on hand, or make circles by using a glass.
