Shortbread

|

Ingredients

  • 3 Cups Plain Flour (Sifted)
  • 1 Cup Icing Sugar
  • 1 Cup Cornflour (this can be replaced with oatmeal (not porridge oats) for a slightly different texture and nuttier flavour)
  • 1 ½ Blocks Cold Butter (375 Grams)

Method

Chop butter and put in food processor with icing sugar, pulse until it looks like millions. Add both flours and pulse until it looks like breadcrumbs. Empty onto cold surface and knead lightly till it comes into a solid paste. Chill.
Roll thinly and cut into rounds. Place on baking sheet and put in oven until just starting to color. Place on cooling rack and while still hot from the oven sprinkle caster sugar over the top.
