Goji berries shortbreads

Here is a smart yummy way to eat goji berries. This amazing superfruit from Tibet is rich in vitamin C, B2, beta-carotene and iron, and is pretty good! Dried goji berry tastes like raisin but more sour. It’s a very trendy dried fruit.

You can store the goji berries shortbreads in a tin box for more than a week. You can have them for breakfast with a glass of milk or juice, a cup of tea or coffee, or you can take them away as a snack to recharge your batteries and have some vitamins throughout the day!

Makes around 15 goji berries shortbreads

  • 1 and 1/4 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup goji berries
  • Caster sugar

Soak the goji berries in some water.

In a bowl, combine the flour and butter cut into small chunks. Crush the pieces of butter into the flour between your fingers until no pieces of butter anymore and you obtain a mixture that looks like wet sand.

Add the brown sugar and mix.

Add the egg and knead the dough squashing it trough the work surface with your palm until even.

Drain the goji berries and add to the dough. Give it a good mix.

Form a ball of dough, wrap in plastic wrap and let it sit in the fridge for at least an hour.

Preheat the oven to 360°F.

In a bowl, combine 1 tsp brown sugar and 2 tsps caster sugar.

If you like thick shortbreads, soft inside, make some 0.90 oz small balls of dough and roll them in the brown and caster sugar mix.

If you like thin crispy shortbreads, roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper until 0.2 inches thick and refrigerate for 10 to 15 minutes. With a cookie cutter or a glass, cut some flat circles in the dough and sprinkle with brown and caster sugar.

Place the goji berries shortbreads on a baking tray covered with parchment paper or a non-stick sheet pan and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
