Sharing an easy idea for decorating shortbread cookies with jam and Nutella.
Let me start by saying, ‘Shortbread, you are enough.’
I don’t want to take the chance of giving shortbread even a hint that it is not enough, just on its own. As if that was even a possibility. I’m sure we can all agree that the perfect combination of pure butter, sugar, salt, and flour guarantee that shortbread is delicious on its own.
But every once in a while, it’s fun to dress up, especially in honor of National Strawberry Day today! I’m celebrating by sharing the latest way in which I enjoy my favorite shortbread.
If you want to step out of the traditional shortbread box, then this is an easy idea. I wouldn’t go so far as to call it a ‘recipe’, more like a little dress-up idea. I used Walkers Pure Butter Assorted Shortbread because, well, it’s Walkers Shortbread…their buttery shortbread was the perfect canvas for the Nutella and Strawberry Jam.
Simply by putting a little warmed-up Nutella and a little strawberry jam in squeeze bottles, you too can ‘dress’ up your shortbread in delightful fashion. If your strawberry has fruity chunks in it, you might want to just puree it quickly…those strawberry bits can clog the tip of your squeeze bottle.
And, seriously, just the whole act of squeezing jam and Nutella on anything will up the fun factor. But you don’t even really need squeeze bottles, I just happen to have them as I use them often. You could just as easily dip your fork into warmed up Nutella and Jam and drizzle it over your Shortbread that way.
And while we enjoyed the shortbread cookies with jam and Nutella combination, the possibilities are endless! You could warm up a little creamy peanut butter in place of the Nutella. Or if white chocolate is your thing, then by all means, go that route.
In any event beyond National Strawberry Day, these ‘dressed up’ shortbread cookies with jam are a fun change to an afternoon snack…perfect with a glass of milk or cup of tea.
