Recipe's preparation


  1. Place all ingredients in the bowl

    Closed lid mix 15 seconds speed 6

    Mixture should look like crumbs

    Dough mode kneed 45 seconds

    mixture should now be more like a soft dough. Knead a few seconds longer if necessary, however it will still look a bit crumbly. Tip mixture onto the bench and gather together into a disc shape.

    Cut mixture in quarters or thirds, depending on size you want, and roll into logs. Cover and place in refrigerator for 30 mins. (Logs can also be wrapped in cling film and frozen at this stage, for later use)

    line trays with baking paper and slice shortbread into discs, approx 1cm wide. Prick, or flatten slightly with a fork. Sprinkle with extra castor sugar.

    Bake for 20-25 mins in a pre heated 160 degree oven. They should be light golden in colour.
