Shortbread biscuits are easy not to go wrong and they generally remain in the same shape as when you put them in the oven. The clotted cream is what makes these so good, they just melt into your mouth.

125g butter, softened
100g caster sugar
100g clotted cream
200g flour, sieved
pinch of salt
100g pistachios, chopped
200g white chocolate, in small chunks
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray.
2. Cream together the butter and sugar. Once lighter in colour, mix in the clotted cream.
3. Now add in the flours and salt and combine until a dough is formed. Mix in the nuts and chocolate – sometimes best using hands.
