Hi, is it ok to use butter instead of margerine? Yes you can use butter, it will need to be at room temperature or it is hard to cream it with the sugar. The Cookit Team.

What could I substitute for Cocoa Powder ingredient? Or isn't there one? This recipe really does need the cocoa to make it chocolate flavoured. If you didn't want chocolate flavour or had no cocoa you could leave out the cocoa and add more flour to make up the difference, add a little more vanilla essence to make them vanilla flavour instead.

Just followed the recipe to precise measurements and here they come from the oven now... YUM!! Can't believe how well these worked first time. Have with mint custard they're great.
For mint custard... 2 x heaped tbsp cornflour, 2 heaped tbsp sugar, 1pint milk. Green food colouring and peppermint flavouring. Add a little of the milk to the dry ingredients to form a smooth paste. Boil rest of the milk then add to the paste stiring until thickened. Add 1 teaspoon on peppermint flavouring and as much green colouring as required until it looks appetising. YUM - WHAT A COMBO!

Hi, How much do you roll it out to according to cm, if i want to use a cookie cutter
Name: Paige 8th October 2012
does it make a difference if i use self raising flour? Yes, self raising flour will change the texture to be more open and fluffy, like a cake rather than a biscuit. The Cookit Team.

Lovely biscuits, tho measurements are a bit awkward as my scales go up in 25g's, another valid excuse to get electric scales!
Name: David Sexton 20th January 2013

i made mine soo thin that i made 30 but half of them were a bit burnt so i have about 15 left -.-
but the ones that aren't burnt are wonderful and there really easy to make but took longer than 10 mins for me to make them cuz i took my time when i made them :D i also used number cutters
Name: Moog2 3rd March 2013
did anyone find this recipe rather dry i had to add water just so that it would stick together?
Name: Tia 1st April 2013
I want to have a go at making these so when mixing the ingredients. Together do I also add the chocolate and how long do I put them in for? To make these you use cocoa and this is mixed into the creamed margarine and sugar (with the flour and vanilla essence). Bake for 15 minutes for small biscuits (approx. 1.5 inches or 4cm diameter) and up to 30 for large ones. They should be firm but crumbly when finished. They will firm up a little as they cool too. We hope this helps. The Cookit Team

The dough turned dry so had to add water "(
Name: UltimateQueen 3rd June 2014
i thought this shortbread was amazing!! everyone else seems to say it was too dry, but for me it was almost a little too gloopy! does it matter if i used butter instead of margarine?
