150g unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
1 tbsp Natvia
2 tsps vanilla extract
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
1 ¼ cup plain flour
Preheat oven to 150 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper
Beat softened cream with Natvia and vanilla for about 8 minutes, until super fluffy and super pale
Add in lemon juice and zest and flour. Mix / knead until just combined, do not over-mix the dough or else your shortbread will be too tough. Add extra lemon if the dough is too dry, or extra flour if too sticky – be cautious while you add
Press the mixture into a ball and flatten slightly. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 15 minutes
Roll out dough on a floured bench or between two baking paper sheets. Roll until the dough is evenly about ½ cm thick. Place back in fridge 10 minutes. If the dough is starting to get too sticky or melting while youre working with it, simply stop and place it in the fridge again. If the dough is too warm it will become too difficult to work with
Using a cookie cutter, cut into desired shapes and carefully place on prepared baking tray. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until golden brown
Allow them to cool on the tray before transferring them to a wire rack, they will be very delicate and can break easily before they cool down
