White & Nerdy Shortbread

Delicious geeky morsels for your nerdy friends!

So these beauties were created for a variety of reasons and I shall proceed to outline them, much to your bore and my delight:

  1. I LOVE Nerds…not just the one I am engaged to but also the tasty crunchy candies from Wonka that you either pay a fortune for in an Americandy shop OR if you’re lucky get HUGE boxes for at a fraction of the price in Poundland!
  2. I was going to the Zoo…A planned Edinburgh Zoo trip meant picnic edibles had to be created for Grant, Becca, Daz and me whilst we gallivanted around the Zoo on a Sunday.
  3. \I enjoy putting random twists on normal recipes
  4. My mates love Nerds…especially JoJo at school who loves my Nerd cupcakes.
  5. This recipe gave me the chance to make shortbread which I used to make every weekend at my Dad’s when I was little because it was the only thing I could make…
  6. As a result reason 6 has warranted it’s name…My Dad is a fan of Weird Al Yankovich…if you haven’t heard him, you should, he’s funny and provides pastiche takes on songs; one being White & Nerdy which you can watch here and giggle at whilst eating these…

So enjoy putting this tasty traybake together and put your own twist on it! Continue reading »
