  4. Insert measuring cup into lid and blitz on speed 8 for 20 seconds or until smooth.
  5. Allow to cool slightly to avoid burning yourself.
Assembly
  1. Place a little jam on the underside of one shortbread shape.
  2. Place another shortbread on top of the jam.
  3. Be sure not to over fill these as the jam will spill out and be messy to eat.
