Baking | Shortbread

Hey everyone.

I have another baking post today, and it is shortbread…I absolutely love shortbread, especially at this time of the year, so it only seemed right to make my own. I have not made shortbread in years, and it was so nice to try the out again.

You will need:

125g unsalted butter (room temperature)

55g caster sugar

180g plain flour

Granulated sugar for dusting afterwards

  • Preheat your oven to 170 degrees
  • Beat the butter and sugar together until smooth
  • Add the flour and mix together
  • Roll the biscuit mixture until it is around 1cm thick and cut into rectangles (or any shape you want)
  • Place the biscuits onto a tray with baking paper (or put some butter on the tray, so they will not stick) and place in the oven
  • Allow them to cook for 15-20 minutes, or until they are golden brown
  • Some of the biscuit may feel soft when taken out of the oven, do not worry, after they have cooled down, they will harden
  • Sprinkle with sugar to finish off
  • And there you have it, great tasting shortbread!

Hope you are all having a great week and have a fabulous weekend!
