Shortbread

Jessica White
Crisp and buttery, these simple-to-make biscuits have long been a favourite. Meg's recipe uses cornflour/cornstarch for a creamier texture and rice flour to give a crisper bite. You don't mess with the classics - it took us 10 years to decide to add a pinch of salt!

Recipe : Madeleines

Jessica White
These lovely little cakes, shaped like scallop shells, are believed to have originated in the Lorraine region of France. Since Marcel Proust gave them a mention in his novel ‘Remembrance of Things Past’, generations of French children have come home to a plate of these to dip in their ‘chocolat chaud’. They work equally well with a nice cup of tea or coffee. Happy baking!
