1 sheet 300mm x 400mm

Uses: Large or individual tart shell bases and cutouts.

Tips: Refrigerate overnight prior to use. The shortbread can be frozen before baking.Once baked, good to store in a dry, tasteless environment.

What is the best cocoa powder?:  Nature Cacao

Why?  The shortbread made with Nature Cacao delivers a rustic roasted cacao taste with notes of cherry, dry fruits and spices. This powder pairs very well with cherry, raspberry, blackcurrant, tonka bean,...
In addition, using a natural powder influences the dough leavening: it gives a lighter texture due to the acidity level of the powder.

Scientific recommendations: As is the case in shortcrust pastry, the gluten network does not develop very much, making it crisp. The crunchy texture is due to the sugar used in the preparation.

Allergens: Egg products, Gluten, Nuts, Lactose
