Shortbread


Shortbread is another of those gifts I like to make and then have to make more because I eat it all.

Again, shortbread + tea = perfection.

Ingredients:
250g butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup rice flour

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 150C.

2. Put caster sugar and flours into a bowl. Rub in butter with fingertips until dough starts to stick.

3. When the dough comes together, squeeze into a ball and spread out evenly onto a tray covered in baking paper. Prick all over with a fork and score lines where you would like to cut into pieces.

4. Bake for 15-30 minutes until starting to brown slightly around the edges.

5. Cool on the tray and cut into squares.

  4. I remember the first time I tasted real home-made shortbread. It was made by a lovely Scottish lady who was friends with my Nanna. She would make some every year ... in the round with slices like a pizza. No shortbread tasted like hers, but this recipe sounds very similar!

  5. I'm so sure it's because Scottish ladies make it that it tastes better!
