Hungarian Shortbread (and I thought shortbread was Scottish!)

1 May

I’ve made shortbread many times (from many different recipes) but never using a box grater!  And, I’ve never made a ‘filled’ shortbread!  They were very tasty, relatively easy (though, I’d like to try the recipe by merely pressing them into a pan rather than using the grater – seemed a little more work than necessary), but I did really love the inclusion of a preserve (I used homemade peach preserves from a dear friend of mine).

    Delicious Shortbread… I’m definitely going to make it again.
    I loved it, and though I’d reduced the butter by 1/3 it still was great!
    Thanks for baking along!

    Mmm I agree, peach sounds lovely! Looks delicious (albeit not Scottish!)

    This technique was really different! The results have certainly gotten raves, though. 🙂

    Peach sounds nice! I have to admit, I loved the grating part!!

    Peach, yum.
    I have to say that I never would have thought to grate my dough, but it was a very clever technique.

    Your bars look wonderful! I thought grating the dough was a fun twist…never had done that!! 🙂

    Grating the dough was fun and gave this such a lovely texture. I have to say, I’m jealous of your peach preserves – sounds lovely with this shortbread.
