Recipe: Shortbread

Aaah it's coming up on the festive season and I do so love seasonal food. With tomorrow being the 1st of December we're having a small gathering to put up my Christmas tree and that means one thing... shortbread!

This recipe is so easy and so good it just begs to be made all year round.

250g butter, softened
1 cup icing sugar
1 cup corn flour
2 cups plain flour


  • Cream butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy

  • Sift cornflour and flour together

  • Mix sifted ingredients into creamed mixture

  • Knead well (or cheat and use a mixer until the dough reaches a crumbly texture and then knead)

  • On a lightfly floured board roll out to about 0.5cm thickness

  • Cute with cutesy Christmas shaped cutters.

  • Place onto a greased tray and bake at 150C for around 12 mins per tray

  • Eat with eggnog and too much brandy. Hmmm.
