Sugar free shortbread fingers

This recipe is from Annabel Karmel's the very first cookery book for young children and I love it. The dough is very easy to make, doesn't need a resting, it's easy to roll and you can cut out different shapes using a cookie cutters or you can roll it flat forming a square and cutting the "fingers" using a knife.Which ever way you choose, enjoy eating them and don't forget to share them .....


50 gr wholemeal flour
100 gr white flour
75 gr semolina or any flour of your choice 
1/4 tsp cinnamon or ginger ( optional ) 
pinch of salt
75 gr butter, cubed and room temperature 
1 banana, mashed
1 tablespoon maple syrup ( optional )

Put the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and rub in the butter.
Add the banana and the syrup if you are using.
Form a dough and roll it out between a cling film, make sure you get a rectangle shape (it's just easier to cut the biscuits.
Using a knife, cut the dough into strips horizontally and vertically. Prick your biscuits with fork and place them in a baking tray.
Bake on 200 C for 15 - 20 minutes.
