  • 1 1/2 sticks (170g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups (210g) plain flour
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 4 tbsp icing sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp multi-coloured Funfetti/sprinkles
  • 2 tbsp milk


  • Place a piece of grease proof paper into an 8x8 inch square pan and leave to one side.
  • Place butter, flours, sugar, salt and vanilla into a large bowl, or the bowl of your stand mixer and beat on medium-high speed until you have a crumbly mixture which is just starting to come together. The butter will be pea sized, although some larger lumps are fine.
  • Add in the Funfetti and 1tbsp of milk, then mix until well combined. Add in another 1tbsp of milk and then mix until a soft dough forms.
  • Tip the dough into your lined pan and press into a level layer. Use your hands or the base of a glass/cup.
  • Place in the fridge for 10-15 minutes. Whilst chilling, preheat the oven to 160C/325F and line 2 baking trays.
  • Once chilled, lift out the dough from the square pan and place on a cutting board. Either with a knife, or pizza cutter (I used a pizza cutter), slice into bite size pieces. My pieces were around 1/2 an inch-3/4 inch thick. I made around 64 bites. You can make them however big or small you want.
  • Separate all the shortbread bites and then place them onto your lined trays, leaving a little gap between each one.
  • Place in the oven for 12-17 minutes (depending on how big they are) until they look matte when the light from the oven hits them. If they look a little dark/soggy in the light, they're are not done.
  • You don't want them to be golden or coloured in anyway, just slightly firm to the touch and matte.
  • Leave to cool on the trays completely, before transferring to an airtight container. Funfetti Shortbread Bites will keep at room temperature for 5 days.
