How to Make My Mum's Simple Shortbread

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 8 steps you must follow to make My Mum's Simple Shortbread in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • preheat your oven to 160°C
  • Step 2
  • Cream the butter and then beat in the sugar until smooth
  • Step 3
  • Add in the flour and cornflour (sifting it first gives a smoother texture) and mix gently until a dough is formed
  • Step 4
  • Form the dough into a ball and knead it lightly
  • Step 5
  • Press the dough into a sandwich tin and smooth it out the palms of your hands, prick all ovdr the top with a fork
  • Step 6
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes (now this is the hard part, it is very difficult to judge when it's done, it should be a light golden brown colour. if you press your finger into it the mark should remain in it. Don't worry if it doesn't like right because it probably is!!)
  • Step 7
  • Allow it to sit in the tray for 5 minutes then gently cut it into squares or fingers and transfer it on to a wire wrack.
  • Step 8
  • Sprinkle the top with caster sugar, to me, icing ruins it because it makes the shortbread very soggy and it's nice plain
