These Grapefruit Curd Shortbread Squares are a fresh & bright dessert! Made with a tender and buttery shortbread crust, and topped with a delicious homemade grapefruit curd. So good.
Earlier this spring I made a batch of Lemon Shortbread Squares, and after I took my first bite I knew I had to make them again. The lemon was so good, so I thought different citrus curds would also be great, so this time I decided to make these squares with grapefruit curd. And yes, they are as delicious as you can imagine!
The grapefruit curd is perfect with the buttery shortbread…fresh, bright and so full of flavour. These squares turned out as good as I had hoped. Now I want to try them with oranges and limes!
Not only are these squares delicious, but they’re really easy to make too. If you have about an hour of time, you can have these out of the oven and ready to serve. In fact, the hardest thing about making these squares for me, was being left alone with them until everyone got home from work and school! The temptation is real y’all. I have a reaaaaaal hard time resisting the shortbread crust on these little bites of heaven.
I actually can’t say enough about how much I love the shortbread cookie base on this square. It’s everything I ever wanted in a shortbread…it’s tender, sweet, buttery and so perfect. It is definitely going to be my go to base for any tarts I make going forward.
I hope you love these Grapefruit Curd Shortbread Squares as much as we do!
