Description

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

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