Vino Cotto, Raisin, Ginger and Lemon Shortbread

Step 1: Preheat oven to 180⁰C.

Step 2: Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Step 3: Soak raisins in a small bowl with Vino Cotto and set aside.

Step 4: Combine butter, sugar, salt and vanilla extract in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until well combined, but be careful not to over mix.

Step 5: Sift flour into the bowl and mix on a low speed until well combined.

Step 6: Stir in raisins and Vino Cotto mixture, lemon rind, crystallized ginger and lemon thyme.

Step 8: Remove from the fridge and place on a prepared tray, removing the top sheet of baking paper.

Step 9: Bake for 8 minutes, or until golden. Allow to cool on tray before serving.
