Mexican Shortbread

Flip it!

Shortbread is such a popular kind of cookie with its buttery taste and flaky texture. They also tend to be one of the easiest cookie recipes to make using the fewest ingredients; just all-purpose flour, butter, sugar and salt, and occasionally something fine like rice flour or cornstarch. Shortbread can also be incredibly varied, as will be seen in this Mexican shortbread recipe, which combines the classic ingredients with a cinnamon tea and cinnamon sugar mixture.

If you adore cinnamon-flavoured desserts, these shortbread cookies will be an amazing snack along with a cup of tea or brewed coffee.
