Ingredients

  • 62.5 g caster sugar
  • 125 g unsalted butter
  • 250 g plain flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

To decorate

  • 11 strawberries halved
  • 20 marshmallows
  • 22 cherries
  • 18 raspberries
  • 2 handfuls blueberries
  • 75 g white chocolate melted

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC/160ºC Fan/Gas 4/350ºF and line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  • Cream the sugar and butter until light, pale and fluffy.
  • Add the flour and vanilla and mix until just combined.
  • Bring the dough together with your hands then roll it out between two sheets of baking paper to 5mm thick.
  • Use a large dinner plate as a template and score around the outside with a sharp knife to make a circle.
  • Chill the shortbread in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Bake in the centre of a pre-heated oven for 15 minutes or until the edges have turned a light brown. Once baked, remove from the oven and allow to completely cool on the tray before adding the fruit decoration.
  • Assemble the fruit shield by adding alternating rows of fruit. Begin with the strawberries, add a row of marshmallows, balance the cherries on top of the strawberries and marshmallows then add the raspberries. Finally, add the star-shaped cookie cutter filled with melted white chocolate into the centre of the shield and fill any gaps with blueberries.
