I really was craving something sweet over the weekend so I decided to make up a quick batch of Shortbread Biscuits. These are my one downfall, I don't eat cake, I very rarely eat sweets, just the odd bag of liquorice ... but I do love shortbread.
Here's the recipe I use, it's very simple.
200g Plain Flour
200g Softened Butter
50g Golden Caster Sugar
I whizz up normal sugar in my food processor or Nutribullet (with the grinding blade)
Whizz the flour and butter in your food processor.
Add the sugar whizz a bit more.
Tip the mixture into a lined 22cm cake or tart tin and press down with your fingers or the back of a spoon. Persevere this can take a while.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until pale golden brown in a medium heat oven, I use the simmering oven of the Aga.
While still warm prick with a fork, cut into wedges and dredge with some more sugar.
Leave in the tin until completely cold.
Try not to eat all at once ;-)
