There’s seems to be a special day for mostly everything now (yesterday it was #worldplantmilkday) and tomorrow we’ll be celebrating National Burger Day in our own fun way: DIY Burger Shortbread Cookies!

I’ve adapted my trusty Stork Shortbread recipe to make these- they take about 1.5 hours to prep, bake and put together so they’re a fairly quick and super fun way to add a twist to your #NationalBurgerDay celebrations. These can be made Vegan too- so I’ve added the alternative ingredients with (vg) in my recipe below:

INGREDIENTS:

For the Shortbread

125g Stork Margarine

175g Plain Flour

50g Caster Sugar

To Decorate

1 Egg (whisked) / Coconut Milk (vg)

Sesame Seeds

Icing Sugar

Cocoa Powder

Ready Roll Icing

Red Fizzy Laces / Red Ready Roll Icing (vg)

HOW TO: (watch my tutorial video here)

Shortbread Buns:

  1. Mix all the shortbread ingredients by hand to create a soft dough.
  2. Roll to approx 0.75cm thick and cut into rounds with a 5cm cutter. I cut 6.
  3. With the excess, split into 6 equal parts and roll into balls. Use the palm of your hand to flatten these into dome shapes.
  4. Bake for 12 mins / until very light golden on 150C or 300F.
  5. Remove from oven and brush with egg/coconut milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds
  6. Bake for 5 mins more

LET THEM COOL!

Burgers and fillings:

  1. Mix the Icing Sugar, Cocoa and stork to make a thick butter cream.
  2. Place in a piping bag and pipe burger rounds using a thick plain nozzle or cut the end of a disposable piping bag.
  3. Use the ready roll icing to make your cheese squares and lettuce leaves. I bought a block of yellow then used a little blue food colouring to make some green for the leaves.
  4. Cut your red fizzy sweets into semi-circular “tomatoes” (or use more red ready roll icing if you’re making the vegan version.)
  5. Layer up your burgers with “cheese, lettuce and tomatoes” and pop the top of the buns on.

AND YOU’RE DONE!
