Shortbread


This recipe is not so much 'traditional' as straightforward or simple. It is no fail
Here is the recipe:
200 gms plain flour
200 gms butter
100 gms icing sugar
100 gms cornflour

Let butter soften to room temp
cream butter and sugar
add sifted flours
roll to 1/4" thick and cut into desired shapes
Bake in oven 350F (175-180) for 15 mins
Sprinkle with castor sugar when warm

My 'hints' are: allow butter to soften naturally (not in microwave) and if making gluten free replace plain flour with rice flour and make sure cornflour is gluten free.

I use the same recipe but mine do not look as good as yours. Those hearts are delightful. I am not that patient.
