    Directions

    1. To make the shortbread, place the butter and icing sugar in a bowl and then sieve the flour and cornflour on top.
    2. Using a hand-held beater, whisk until you have achieved a smooth dough, adding a tablespoon of cold water to help bring the mixture together if necessary.
    3. Cover with clingfilm & place in fridge to rest for at least 1 hour
    4. Roll out the shortbread on a lightly floured work surface until 3mm (1/8in) thick.
    5. Stamp out discs using a straight sided cutter. Place on a greased baking sheet.
    6. Leave to rest again in the fridge for 30 minutes-this will help to stop them from shrinking.
    7. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F), Gas mark 4. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool.
    8. For orange & vanilla cream: Scrape out the seeds from the vanilla pod. Whip together the cream with orange zest and vanilla seeds until cream is stiff.
    9. To serve: Layer the shortbread with the cream and top with raspberries, continue in this order to make a short stack. Dust with icing sugar & serve.
