How does short crumbly almond shortbread, topped with delicious fruity apricot ‘jam’, and finished with amaretti biscuits and flaked almonds sound?
Well, for me it sounds sheer bliss, and given how well these pimped up slices of shortbread have been received amongst family and neighbours they clearly feel the same too!
This easy traybake recipe (and yes, it is easy with no rolling out, creaming or folding) is all about texture. Starting from the bottom up is a layer of super short almond shortbread which almost melts in the mouth. Then comes the soft fruity taste of apricots, their beautiful colour peeking temptingly through the crumble of amaretti biscuits and flaked almonds.
How I wish I had another slice right now!
In fact, as it takes less than an hour to make, including the bake time, you can find me in the kitchen whilst I rustle up another batch just in time for an afternoon treat!
So, here’s how to make Apricot & Almond Shortbread Slices.
