It’s that time of year, the Great British Bake Off has returned! Here is my Chocolate Chip Shortbread recipe for the much more exciting, Moo Free Bake Off!! When Moo Free contacted me asking if I wanted to take part in their allergy friendly Bake Off I jumped at the chance. If you’ve followed mummybakesdairyfree for a while then you’ll remember my mummybakesdairyfree does the Great British Bake Off challenge last year. Each week I attempted to make an allergy friendly version of the week’s bakes. Some with more success than others! I’m still keeping an open mind about the new home for the GBBO. But I do miss Mel, Sue and Mary, and I’m definitely not a fan of the adverts! So I’m looking forward to seeing all the allergy friendly recipes created for the Moo Free Bake Off to make up for it!
Chocolate chip Shortbread
I wanted to create a recipe which would not only showcase the main ingredient, Moo Free Baking Drops, but one that is also perfect to get children involved with. The recipe is super simple, using only a few basic ingredients. This means it’s one to pull out on a rainy day! Little one loved helping to mix the ingredients and rolling out the dough. Although her favourite part was definitely sampling the baking drops!!
Another bonus with my Chocolate Chip Shortbread recipe is its adaptability. I’m looking forward to experimenting with additional flavourings and coatings. Desiccated coconut could be yummy! This time I coated half of the shortbread with melted chocolate, however they are delicious left plain. Although the chocolate coated ones were demolished first… so I’d recommend giving that a go! The beauty of using the Moo Free Baking Drops is that they melt really nicely. You can easily melt them in the microwave or in a bowl over simmering water on the hob.
