This recipe is inspired from one by Ottolenghi that I have basically veganised it. So I cannot take full credit. This was my favourite shortbread recipe before going vegan and now I can still enjoy it, all be it not as buttery, just making a few simple swaps.
It works as a great base recipe to add so many other flavours, such as orange and cinnamon at Christmas, vanilla and lavender, or add herbs for a savoury biscuit, you can also swap in various other chopped nuts. The options are endless.
