    1. Preheat the oven to 150◦C / Gas 2 / fan oven 130◦C. Put the flour in a mixing bowl, add the butter and rub together to make fine crumbs. Stir in the sugar.
    2. Work the mixture together until it forms a ball. (this may take a while). Turn out onto a work surface to an 18cm / 7in round. Smooth the surface with your hands. Carefully slide the dough on to an ungreased baking sheet and flute the egdes. Mark the circle into eight triangles with a knife, not cutting all the way through. Prick the surface all over with a fork.
    3. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until cooked. The shortbread should be very pale. While still warm, cut through the markings and sprinkle with caster sugar. Cool before eating.
