Lemon Myrtle Short Bread Cookies

We have taken a simple recipe and added a little lemon myrtle flavor, giving your cookies an extra lemony flavor and aroma. These cookies are great for the kids, or even frozen for a special afternoon tea treat.. Make sure you have yourself good quality butter, a little tip to fabulous cookies. 


2 cups all purpose flour

¼ teaspoon salt

220 grams unsalted butter, room temperature

½ cup powered confectioners’ sugar, and a little more for decorating

1 teaspoon Lemon Myrtle with Kakadu Plum 



- In a small bowl, sift together flour and salt and set aside

- With an electric mixer (or hand held beater) cream the butter until light and creamy. Add the sugar and beat until smooth.

- Slowly incorporate the flour mixture followed by the lemon myrtle until a firm dough is formed

- Form dough into a sausage and cover with cling wrap, placing it in the fridge for about 30 minutes

- Roll out the dough to about 1cm thickness and cut into shapes of your desire.

- Bake for 20 minutes or until golden at 180 degrees.
