A recipe so simple, quick and delicious, it makes you wonder why people actually buy this stuff in shops.

300g Plain Flour
300g Butter
75g Caster Sugar (plus a bit extra for dusting)

Beat the butter with sugar, with an electric whisk until light and fluffy.
Tip in the flour and beat together until it is crumbly.
Use your hands and bring everything together to a sticky dough.
Press into a greased 27in tart tin and smooth round with the back of a spoon.
Bake in a preheated oven (160C fan assisted, 180C if not) for about 30 minutes or until golden.
Remove from oven.
While warm and still in the tin, cut into wedges and dust with caster sugar.
Leave to cool completely in the tin.

Stick the kettle on and enjoy.

  1. wow, looks good... we're constantly making shortbread here simply because it's so easy and the results are so tasty... very funny to notice how many people watched Lorraine Pascale's Baking Made Easy this weekend!
