Homemade Shortbread

I made shortbread biscuits for my daughters playgroup Eid party. long overdue! she has been keeping me busy!

Nothing fancy, just simple, scrumptious biccies.


Mix together 4 oz of Caster Sugar, and 8oz of butter. Then add 10 oz of plain flour to form a dough.

Roll the dough out or pat it flat and then use cookie cutters to form whatever shape you like.

Line a baking tray with parchment.

Place your shortbreads on the lined baking tray and bake in the oven gas mark 5 for 15-20 mins.

Heres what they looked like before going in


And after in a tub…


They did come out bigger after being baked, so I would say make your shapes a little smaller.
