Remember its Mother’s Day this Sunday for those of you in the UK. Whip up a batch of these delicately floral shortbread, pop them in a lovely tin and there you have it, a thoughtful gift to show your mum how much she means to you.
They are regular shortbread, with the addition of a little rose water, crisp, crunchy and fragrant, drizzled with white chocolate and then topped with gorgeous edible rose petals.
