About this recipe: Rich and buttery, great if making for a crowd. Traditional shortbread is baked at a fairly low temperature, and is not browned.

Makes: 20 biscuits

  • 225g (8oz) plain flour
  • 113g (4oz) cornflour
  • 225g (8oz) butter (block)
  • 113g (4oz) icing sugar

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 C / Gas 2 1/2.
  2. Rub all in together. Do not add in any liquid - it is supposed to be very hard to knead. Knead just enough to incorporate all the ingredients.
  3. Roll out and cut, place on floured baking trays.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes.

Freezing tip

The leftover dough can be frozen for another time.
