Afternoon Baking | Quick & Easy Homemade Shortbread

As i’ve mentioned before I have a sweet tooth, in fact an everything tooth! I love sweet & carbs which isn’t necessarily a good thing so I tend to not buy junk in on the house shop and get it from every now and again.. actually that’s a bit of a fib, quite a lot lately *hides*. Due to not having junk in the house I don’t have any biscuits and today that pesky sweet tooth came out, cause come on you can’t have a cup of tea without a biscuit right?!? I headed over to my trusty friend BBC Good Food and found a quick and easy recipe to use, needing only 3 ingredients!
