Shortbread Biscuit Recipe

Makes approx. 12 biscuits
  • 115g butter
  • 175g plain flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 55g caster sugar
This recipe isn't a do or die - I use Lurpak spreadable instead of butter and quite often use golden granulated sugar instead of caster sugar, just depends what's in the cupboard. Whatever variation, these little biscuits always seem to work out beautifully.

Oven to 180

Mix together the flour, salt and sugar. Rub the butter into the dry ingredients. Continue to work until a soft dough is formed.

Roll the dough into a sausage with a diameter of about 5cm. Cut discs of just less than 1cm thick from the dough and place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Dip in melted chocolate, sprinkle with sugar or drizzle with lemon icing when cooled.

Eat. Yum.
