Millionaire’s Shortbread!

Good morning everyone, hope you’re all well ☺ I can’t believe its Wednesday again already, it seems like just yesterday that I was setting up a post on mental health. The week has officially gone by too fast that its made my days meld together. I don’t think its helped that I’ve started coming down with a cold and I’m under a lot of stress at the moment, but enough with the moaning, let’s get on with today’s post…

One of my favourite snacks to have every once in a while is a Millionaire’s Shortbread, I love how quick and easy they are to make and that you can never have just one. If you want to make them, here’s the recipe on how…
