Three Ingredient Airfryer Shortbread Fingers

"shortbread fingers"

Welcome to our three ingredient airfryer shortbread fingers

I know we only had shortbread yesterday but what can I say other than that I am a huge shortbread addict.

Yesterday was all about the chocolate version that was super naughty and would drive your guests wild with the melted chocolate in the centre. This time it is much more traditional and takes you back to the roots of how the Scottish people make the most amazing shortbread.

They make it into easy to eat fingers that are coated in sugar and full of amazing textures. It is the kind of biscuit that when you try it, you’ll think that it came out of a luxury restaurant and when you see just how easy it is to make you’ll be surprised.

The other benefit of having a shortbread recipe like this is that it is a great basis for other shortbread recipes. You could add raisins to it, almonds, chocolate (like we did yesterday) or just add some zest with either some orange or lemon.

This is also really quick to make too if you’re looking for a quick recipe. It also has just three ingredients!
