As you may have guessed, I love shortbread biscuits as Christmas time! They're delicious, buttery, crumbly and perfect to take along to work for your office Christmas party or package up as little gifts!
This shortbread recipe is super traditional and has been given to me by Isaac's Nanna so yes it's full to the brim with butter and sugar but if it weren't, it wouldn't be a very good shortbread! So why not whip up a batch, and enjoy these biscuits in all their traditional buttery crumbly melt-in-your-mouth goodness this festive season? YUM!
Cream together 125g butter and 1/4 cup caster sugar until pale and fluffy, add 1 1/3 cups plain or spelt flour and combine until just mixed. Don't over mix this. Place into glad wrap for 30 minutes in the fridge. Roll out on a floured surface to 1/2 centimetre thick, cut out biscuits and bake on a baking paper lined tray for 10 minutes at 170 degrees Celsius. Cool and enjoy alone or sandwiched with jam!
