Traditional Shortbread

Ingredients

  • 125g butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup (55g) caster sugar
  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour
  • 1/4 cup (45g) rice flour
  • Caster sugar, to dust

Method

  1. Use an electric mixer to beat butter and caster sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy. Stir in plain flour and rice flour until dough comes together. Shape into a disc.
  2. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Draw a 20cm circle on the paper and turn over.
  3. Place dough on the lined tray. Using paper as a guide, roll dough out to a 20cm disc. Use your fingertips to pinch dough to create a fluted edge. Use a large sharp knife to score 8 wedges into dough (don’t cut all the way through). Use a fork to prick each wedge twice.
  4. Sprinkle evenly with sugar. Bake for 30 mins or until light golden. Set aside on the tray to cool completely.
