Monday Bake - Shortbread Rounds

Last Friday I received the most exciting post - I had won a giveaway on the lovely Silverpebble's blog - a stunning silver cornflower necklace.  Having been to one of Emma's silver clay classes, with my TwitKnit friends last AprilI can see how much work has gone into this gorgeous piece of jewellery - I will wear it with pride - I do keep admiring it in the mirror!  If you are able to go to one of her classes I highly recommend it, it is amazing watching your little handmade pieces go from clay to silver, like magic!

I have made Sophie Dahl's Lemon Mousse a few times and for Sunday pudding this week I thought I would make shortbread biscuits to go with it.  The recipe I use is from her book Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights - this is a very similar recipe here

BestFriend had told me she had made James Martin's shortbread previously.  It is really easy to make whizzing everything together in a food processor and then baking it in a muffin tin.  This is a really "short" shortbread - not surprising due to the amount of butter it contains! - but it is very good - everybody agreed.
