Shortbread - and a failed attempt at lollibops

I had seen this over on Maggys blog http://www.redtedart.com/?s=lollibops&x=7&y=7 and thought I would try it next time I was making shortbread.

Recipe


  • 100g cornflour
  • 160g rice flour
  • 8 tablespoons caster sugar
  • bottom RHS attempt at lollibop
  • 175g vitalite, softened
Sieve flours, add sugar and rub in vitalite. Place on fridge for 1 hr then roll out and cut




So we made shortbread the other day, so I bravely tried it with a fruit bar I had bought with my order this month. 

after cooking - no difference
So I cut out my differing circles and tore said fruit bar into bits, places fruit bar over gaps and cooked....ho hum....it didnt work, the fruit bar did not melt, nothing said it would or should but I like to experiment. will need to try something else next time.

Whilst I had the shortbread  made and before I put in oven I thought I would sprinkle 3 of each with freeze dried strawberry powder,  freeze dried blackberry powder and dried lime powder , but to be honest cant same time they were cooked you could actually taste the stuff.
