Hazelnut shortbread fingers

Shortbread is a favourite biscuit or cookie, depends on where in the world you live. These hazelnut fingers are crumbly and tasty with melted white chocolate. You certainly don’t need to wait till Christmas to bake these. I reckon these can be baked any time of the year.
