What could be more traditional than a Delia Smith recipe for Shortbread biscuits. These were added the selection of cakes for our afternoon tea alongside summer pudding crumble slices, cupcakes and meringues. The kids were in heaven, even more when we got the scones out.

 

The recipe comes from her cookbook and unfortunately it is not on her website so no link, but all the details are below.
