A treat for a loved one, or a treat for oneself, either way these easy shortbread biscuits are sure to go down a treat. I baked these for my family for valentines day and were enjoyed by everyone. The freeze dried raspberries add an extra crunch to the biscuit, you may struggle to find these in every supermarket but I got mine from Waitrose.
