A simple, easy and tasty dessert. Shortbread is a great gift for Christmas and goes well with a good cuppa' tea.


  • 125g/4oz butter
  • 55g/2oz caster sugar, plus extra to finish
  • 180g/6oz plain flour

Preparation method

  • Heat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5.
  • Beat the butter and the sugar together until smooth.
  • Stir in the flour to get a smooth paste. Turn on to a work surface and gently roll out until the paste is 1cm/½in thick.
  • Cut into rounds or fingers and place onto a baking tray. Sprinkle with caster sugar and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  • Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. Set aside to cool on a wire rack.
