So earlier we posted on why we should be eating butter over margarine, and were heading very close to Christmas, so we thought there was no better time to share a Weber recipe for festive butter shortbread, it serves up to 12, though if your home is anything like ours I would do a double batch!


  • 250g Butter, softened
  • 11-g caster sugar
  • 350g plain flour
  • 75g dried cranberries, roughly chopped

Cooking Method:

  1. Set up your barbecue for grilling (direct) at a medium heat.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar together until smooth.
  3. Stir in the flour to create a smooth paste. Roll into a large sausage shape. Wrap tightly in cling film and chill for approximately 1 hour.
  4. Remove the cling film and roll until 1cm thick and cut out your chosen festive shapes using the cutters.
  5. Place on a lined tray and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a light golden brown.
  6. Cool on a rack before serving.
