Quick Shortbread

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well.

So this shortbread recipe is a little different for a shortbread because it uses icing sugar as opposed to caster sugar. This makes the dough even more smooth as it dissolves much quicker into the butter and the end result has softer texture in the mouth when eating. It’s super simple and quick to make, not sweet at all and would be perfect for a mini snack.

Recipe: Quick shortbread (makes 16)

Ingredients

113g butter

25g icing sugar

136g plain flour

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line 2 trays with baking paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together, add the flour until it forms a smooth dough using your hands.
  • Roll out the dough until just under 1cm thick, use a cookie cutter to cut out the shapes and repeat until all of the dough is used up.
  • Place each shortbread on the tray and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
