Italian shortbread

Our visitors from Tuscany had a treat on Tuesday when they learned how to make shortbread, courtesy of Mrs Zambonini (with much appreciated input from Mrs Stemplis and Mrs Flanagan).

Mrs Zambonini precisely measures the sugar for her shortbread.

Matteo and his shortbread

Matteo - very proud of his baking.

The Italian pupils had a lot of fun and were extremely proud of their creations which were beautifully wrapped in cellophane and tied with a lovely wee tartan ribbon.

In fact, they were so chuffed that Mrs Zambonini even received an impromptu Italian song as thanks!

“Grazie, grazie, Signora Zambonini” (Translation available from Mrs Fitzpatrick.)
