I seem to have mountains of shortbread leftover from Christmas! Any recipes that use shortbread would be helpful!

  • Freeze until you decide… I’m thinking as part of desserts… Apple crumble, on ice cream, sundae…as part of a base for a torte or cheesecake.

  • Freezing it to use as a cheesecake base is always our go to =)

  • You could cover them in chocolate, crush them up and use them as cookie crumbs (add them to ice cream, decoration on a cake or chocolate dipped strawberries, use in a pie crust), or maybe frezee them and eat later?

  • am liking the idea of rocky road (I like to mix it up a little by adding crushed left over biscuits from time to time so not so rich), crush them up as topping for a crumble, crush them up for a cheesecake base too or for a eton mess!

  • A good idea JUNE11; worth trying! Thanks! :)

  • I wonder if they can be crumbed and mixed into sweet tart bases or sweet pie dough.
