So I’m giving shortbread a go today, and thought I would share my experience with you all! This is my first time trying it out so any helpful tips or comments are much appreciated ❤️ Be sure to check out my other recipe articles too!
First of all my recipe tells me to get my oven on to 130 fan assisted or 150 degrees normal. Now that’s warming up I can concentrate on the mix.
For this recipe I’m using; 150g plain flour – 100g softened diced butter – 50g sugar –
Rub the flour and softened butter together to form a bread crumb like texture. Then add in your sugar and stir until you start to form a ball.
You can then turn it out on a floured work surface and briefly knead it until it’s soft. Mine broke up a few times whilst kneading so I made sure to be gentle.
Once it’s smooth pat in out into a circle and gently slide it into you’re tin. I choose a 20cm baking tin as that’s what seemed to fit it best. Use a knife to gently mark 8 pieces in the top and prick each piece a couple times with a fork. Then it’s ready to go in the oven!
Bake for 30-35 mins and REMEMBER IT SHOULD BE PALE. Leave it to cool off and it’s ready to go! Great for dunking in tea and coffee too.
