150 g whole wheat flour
1 dash salt

Recipe Directions for Wholewheat Honey Shortbread

  1. In a large bowl, beat together the butter and honey until well combined.

  2. Stir in the flour and the salt and, using your hands, gently gather the ingredients into a ball of dough without overworking the mixture.

  3. Press the dough into the base of a springform tin. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

  4. Preheat the oven to 170C/325F. Bake for 15-20 minutes until firm to the touch and golden brown.
