About this recipe: Great shortbread has always been a Christmas tradition in our family. A few years ago I started to experiment with my great grandmother's recipe, to make it quicker and easier to make. I successfully managed to change the ingredients and the method to make it tastier and fast to make. It's now a family ... more



Serves: 12 

  • 250g butter softened (low salt or unsalted)
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 280g plain flour, sifted
  • 50g cornflour, sifted
  • 50g rice flour, sifted
  • Caster sugar, to sprinkle after cooking

  1. Preheat oven to 150 C Fan / 170 C otherwise. Place the butter and sugar in a mixer or food processor and cream until pale.
  2. Once well mixed, add the flours and blend briefly, just until thoroughly combined.
  3. Tip into a buttered Swiss roll tin (23x33cm) and, using lightly floured hands, press down so it is level all over.
  4. Prick all over with a fork. Do this carefully, so that you do not disturb the level surface, then bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes. What you are looking for is a uniform pale golden colour all over. Do not allow it to become too dark.
  5. Remove from oven and cut into squares or fingers in the tin, sprinkle the top with caster sugar. Leave for 5 minutes or so then carefully turn out onto a wire rack, and allow it to cool. Store in air tight container. ENJOY!!!
