Today I made a batch of Shortbread. My Mum was the queen of making shortbread.
250g of softened Butter, 1 cup of Cornflour, 2 cups of standard plain flour, 1 cup Icing Sugar.
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Sift Cornflour and flour together. Mix sifted ingredients into creamed mixture. Knead well. On a lightly floured board roll out to 0.5cm thickness (I did mine thicker). Shape into rounds or cut into slices. Place on a tray lined with baking paper. Prick with a fork. Bake at 150 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes or until pale golden.
I put too many on the one tray.
Enjoy with a nice cuppa. I should add this comfort food only to be eaten in moderation. Most of the batch is now in the freezer just in case there are visitors.
