Shortbread


Ingredients:

125g butter (use real butter for yummier shortbread :wink: )
180g flour
55g sugar


Method:

1) pre-heat oven 190C
2) beat sugar and butter together till it becomes pale.
(cheat version: melt butter slightly in MWoven and beat in the sugar )
3) sift the flour into the buttery paste, and stir till you get a smooth dough
4) place it on a lightly floured work surface, and gently knead it.
5) roll it out into a 1 inch thick sheet, cut it into various shapes, springle sugar on top
6) place on buttered baking tray and bake for 15-20 min


tip1:remember shortbread is meant to be butter coloured :wink:

tip2: if you don't get a smooth dough, n it starts breaking ...add more butter

The simple folks call it butter cookies.. :ee:

More descriptive than short bread, don't ya think.. :think: :Ksp:

Is there a long bread?? And why-oh-why is it bread?? :Ksp: Shouldn't breads be different from cookies?? (Not biscuits please.. those are what you eat for breakfast, preferably with bit of butter or honey)..
