Shortbread

Thank you for your rating!

Buttery, crunchy biscuits. Once you’ve mastered the basic recipe experiment with flavourings like lemon zest, chocolate chips or crystalised ginger.

Ingredients

  • 115g butter diced (plus a little extra for greasing)
  • 115g plain flour
  • 55g caster sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar

Instructions

  1. Grease a 20cm flat rectangle cake tin (you can you a flan tin if you do not have a rectangle tin) Preheat the oven to 150°C/300°F/gas mark 2.
  2. Sift the flour, salt and caster sugar together into a mixing bowl. Rub the butter using your finger tips until the mixture turns into a breadcrumb consistency. Then work the mixture to become a soft dough. Lightly press the dough into the greased tin.
  3. Mark the dough into 8 rectangle portions ‘fingers’. Prick all over with a skewer and bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes until firm and golden
  4. Leave to cool and scatter with caster sugar. Cut into the marked portions. If not eaten that day store in an air-tight container.
