Lemon Zebra Shortbread

Shortbread is a great treat, originating from Scotland, and we've added some lemon and chocolate to it to make it look really impressive.

It's cheaper than buying it from the shops, plus it's more fun! How high can you stack them??

Ingredients & RecipePrint


  • plain flour (150g)
  • cornflour (75g)
  • zest of 2 small lemons
  • caster sugar (75g) plus extra for dusting
  • butter at room temperature (185g)
  • chunk of dark chocolate


preheat an oven to 170°C.
mix the flours and lemon zest together.
beat butter and sugar until smooth and pale.
mix the flour into the butter and sugar mix.
press the dough into a greaseproof lined baking tin and cook in the oven for 20 minutes.
sprinkle with sugar when it is still hot and leave to cool.
cut the shortbread into finger sized pieces when cold with a very sharp knife.
melt the chocolate in a bowl in the microwave and drizzle on top of the shortbreads using a spoon at a height to create lines across the shortbread.
