Shortbread Biscuits – Kerrianne Coombes

It’s my birthday tomorrow, so what better way to start my celebrations!

I am going to share with you a recipe that I use a lot. The kids love it, I love it and it’s so easy, it takes minutes. And it’s perfect for this time of the year!

Shortbread Biscuits

The recipe is from my favorite cookbook; Mary Berry’s complete cookbook–her easy recipes make even a bad cook like me look good!

*recipe has been changed a little from cookbook, to add a little Kerrianne 😉 *

125g (4oz) plain flour

60g (2oz) ground rice

125g (4oz) butter, plus extra for greasing.

60g (2oz) castor sugar, plus extra for sprinkling.

1 Mix the flour with the ground rice in a bowl. Add the butter and rub in with finger tips.stir the sugar. Knead the mixture lightly until it is a smooth dough.

2 lightly butter baking tray. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface. Break off little balls and form into a rectangle shape. Note that when the dough cooks it will spread a little so give room on the tray for spreading. Prick with a fork.

3 bake in a preheated oven at 160oc (325f) gas mark 3. For 35 minutes, until golden–though in my experience, they need closer to 25minutes…

4 when you take them from the oven, sprinkle the still hot biscuits with sugar and then leave to cool. Or, in my house–eat immediately and moan about burned fingers afterwards!

My kids love to de orate them too. Fun. Easy and quick!
