When I saw the Britmum's Angel Delight linky challenge celebrating the new bubblegum flavour we were eager to try it out. So I gave Milo the responsibility of preparing Thursday nights pudding, he did a fabulous job and we all enjoyed the results.
However I wanted to try out something else. I have really fond memories of strawberry shortbread my Mum would make when I was a kid, which she would flavour with blancmange mix. This got me thinking about how interesting bubblegum flavoured shortbread would be. So I sent my Mum off to rummage through her old recipe books and adjusted her original recipe to see if I could make Angel Delight Shortbread
I was so impressed with the results, you could of course use any of the Angel Delight flavours for this recipe, but we are particularly fond of the bubblegum variety.
Here's the recipe if you fancy making some yourself ::
35g icing sugar (plus extra for dusting)
1 x 59g packet of angel delight
150g plain flour
Preheat oven to 170.
Cream together the butter and icing sugar, until light and fluffy.
In a separate bowl sift together the rest of the ingredients.
Mix dry ingredients into the butter and sugar.
Put 2 tablespoons of mixture into each cupcake case.
Bake for 15-20 mins until browning slightly.
Allow to cool in tray for a few minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
Add a little jam to the top once cool if you so desire.
Dust with icing sugar.
