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 .....










Ingredients:

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.
