Orange and Cherry Shortbread

Summer is all about the fruit, and these light fruity shortbread are perfect for a summers day afternoon treat. They are super easy to make and will leave you wanting more, I may have eaten 3 in a row the other day…shh!

What you will need:

  • 25g Caster sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 50g Vegan Butter
  • 100g plain flour
  • 25g ground almonds
  • 25g self raising flour
  • 3 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tbsp soda water
  • 20 glacΓ© cherries chopped into 1/4
  • Zest and juice of half an orange


Firstly, pre heat your oven to 180 c. Then line two baking trays with grease proof paper.
Mix together your plain, self raising and almond flour and grate in the zest of one orange.
Cream together your butter and sugar, adding half the flour mix once complete.
Mix together the flour and the butter and sugar and then add the vanilla, soda water, orange juice and almond milk.
Add the rest of the flour mix and combine using your hands to form the dough. If it is too dry try adding almond milk a tbsp at a time.
Flour a clean surface and roll out your dough. I created the traditional circle shape and some stars as I LOVE stars, to be a bit different.
Place the biscuits in the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
Remove and allow to cool, dusting with icing sugar once called as a finishing touch.
