Berry & Yogurt Sorbet with Rosemary Shortbread



This Frozen Berry dessert is not truly a sorbet in that it contains dairy but its light and refreshing nature is what makes it so similar to one. It is the perfect climax to a heavy meal that will ease your guests guilt about having a sweet dessert while also not making their belts feel too tight. The shortbread have a very subtle rosemary flavour that most wouldn't discern unless being told explicitly about it, they're a great accompaniment to the berries that adds a bit more substance to the dish.

  5. Cut the dough into 5 even strips lengthwise and 6 rectangular pieces width wise
