How to make mouth watering shortbread!!!


The following recipe has never failed me in the past, also the end product is always exceptional. I hope you find them absolutely delicious as I and many of my customers have done over the years.



Flour 300 g

Caster sugar 100 g

Butter 200 g


1. Cream together the butter and sugar in a bowl.

2. Mix in the flour to a smooth paste.

3. Roll out the paste 10 mm thick.

4. Cut into rounds or fingers and place onto a baking tray. Prick with a fork.

5. Bake in an oven at 175°C for 40 minutes or until light golden brown in colour.

6. Remove from oven allow to cool on a tray then dust with caster sugar.


1. To make a good shortbread it is important to use butter rather than margarine.

2. Shortbread is fragile. When shaping and transferring to a baking tray care must be taken. Shortbread must be allowed to cool and set on the tray used for baking.
