Method

Step 1.

Preheat the oven to 160°C/140 Fan/Gas 3. Line a couple of baking sheets with greaseproof paper.

Step 2.

Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla extract until pale and fluffy.

Step 3.

Mix in the flour in 6 batches until all has incorporated and you have a smooth dough.

Step 4.

Cover with cling film and chill for 10 minutes.

Step 5.

Lightly dust a work surface with flour and roll out the dough to 1 cm / ½ inch thick.

Step 6.

Cut into 24 rectangles. Using a spatula or palette knife, carefully transfer onto the prepared baking sheets - well spaced (2.5 cm / 1 inch) apart. Top with a square of EXCELLENCE 70% Cocoa Dark Chocolate.

Step 7.

Bake in batches for 12 to 15 minutes or until the shortbreads are golden.

Step 8.

Cool for 2 minutes before sprinkling lightly with sea salt. Leave to cool completely on baking sheets before transferring to storage containers.
