Short bread recipe

Ingredients

  • 9 ounces plain flour
  • 6 ounces butter
  • 3 ounces caster sugar.

Cooking Instructions

Mix the flour and sugar first, and then rub in the butter.

Knead the mixture until it becomes a smooth paste.

Roll out till about 3/4 inch (2 cm) thick.

Cut into rectangles and decorate the top with a fork creating rows of holes.

Transfer to a greased baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes at 160C (325F/Gas Mark 3). They want to stay pale and light golden.

In warm weather you may want to chill the cookies before baking.

To use a shortbread mold: Mix a teaspoon of flour and a teaspoon of caster sugar. Grease the mold with oil and evenly sprinkle half the flour/sugar mix. Press the shortbread into the mold, and turn out onto a baking sheet before baking.
