  6. Spoon a generous amount of Hazelnut Chocolate Spread into the centre of each biscuit before serving. Best eaten within one day or freeze cooked shortcakes and use as needed.

Cooks tips

Cooks tips

  1. To get neat, even sized biscuits for packing, weigh each ball of dough to the same weight.

  2. They're ideal as a foodie gift – just neatly stack and tie with ribbon. Package them with a jar of Bonne Maman Hazelnut Chocolate Spread and they’re good to go.

  3. The shortcakes will freeze, so make a large batch for foodie presents.
