About this recipe: This is the shortbread recipe my mom makes at Christmas and is still my favourite. Melts in your mouth.

IN10CT Sussex, England, UK

Makes: 4 to 5 dozen

  • 340g softened butter
  • 90g icing sugar
  • 280g plain flour
  • 90g cornflour
  • halved glaced cherries, to decorate

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Using an electric whisk, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Gradually add plain flour and cornflour, whisking until well blended.
  2. Using a heaping teaspoon for each biscuit, roll into balls with floured hands to prevent sticking. Place on a baking tray lined with parchment, about 2 to 3cm apart. Gently press down on each biscuit with a floured fork, then place a halved glace cherry in the centre.
  3. Bake at 150 C / Gas 2 for 20 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes before moving from baking tray to wire racks.

You simply HAVE to make these biscuits, they are so divine and so light. This will be a well repeated bake for me!! Thank you for posting the recipe :-) - 09 Oct 2014


Forgot to add the corn flour and the butter was liquid before I added the icing sugar but they were still delicious and definitely do melt in your mouth. - 07 Jul 2014
