Mayonnaise is an underrated and rarely seen baking ingredient, at least in modern days, and it's one that makes for a rich, moist confection. That's a welcome addition to this shortbread recipe, in which mayo joins instant coffee, chocolate chips and cake flour for an interesting, somewhat more cake-like twist on the traditional biscuit-like dough. Shortbread originated in Scotland, with the first printed recipe appearing in in 1736. It's baked in such a way that the cookies don't become overly brown.

Ingredients

  • 130 grams salted butter
  • 120 grams sugar
  • 120 grams mayonnaise
  • 300 grams cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee (dissolved in a small cup of milk)
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • powdered sugar

Directions

  1. In a bowl, beat the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the mayonnaise and mix well.
  3. Add the flour alternating with the coffee milk.
  4. Work the ingredients into a dough with the appearance of shortcrust pastry.
  5. Add the chocolate chips and mix well.
  6. Cover the bowl with plastic film and allow to rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  7. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  8. Roll out the dough on a floured surface, and cut out the desired shapes.
  9. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking pan and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  10. Bake for 13 minutes.
  11. Leave to cool completely before removing from the pan and store in a metal container.

I tried this recipe for a women’s event and everyone loved it. The shortbread was moist and fluffy and the richness of the chocolate, milk and coffee blended well. I may add a bit of flaked coconut when I make it next and increase the coffee milk to keep the batter moist. I have several other variations in mind and look forward to trying each one
