You'll need:

  • 180g unsalted butter
  • 90g caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 270g plain flour
  • 75g MILKYBAR White Chocolate
  • 2 tbsp freeze-dried strawberry pieces

Tips to involve little Farmers

Why not get your little one to sprinkle on the strawberry pieces and add the Milkybar® flourish!


  • 1

    Grease and line a 20cm square baking pan with parchment paper. Pre-heat the oven to 180℃.

  • 2

    Beat the butter and sugar for about 2 to 3 minutes until pale and light. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl halfway through. Add in the vanilla extract and mix again.

  • 3

    Sift in the flour, then mix at low speed until combined and the dough starts to come together.

  • 4

    Add the dough to the prepared pan and use your fingers to press the dough flat across the base. Use an offset spatula or the flat base of a measuring cup to smooth it flat.

  • 5

    Tip: Dip the cup in water to smooth the dough easily. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 24 pieces.

  • 6

    Bake for 25-30 minutes until lightly golden. Remove the pan from the oven and set it on a wire rack; immediately, using the sharp knife, run it along the previously made cuts.

  • 7

    After ten minutes, use the parchment paper to lift the bars from the pan and set them on the wire rack to cool completely.

  • 8

    Melt the MILKYBAR White Chocolate in a small bowl set over a pan of simmering water.

  • 9

    Pour melted chocolate into a small piping bag and drizzle chocolate over each of the bars. Alternatively, use a small teaspoon to drizzle the chocolate onto the shortbread.

  • 10

    Sprinkle the freeze-dried strawberries over the chocolate. Enjoy.
