Recipe of the Week - Scottish Shortbread

There are some things you bake and the smell wafting from the oven just screams 'Domestic Goddess'.

In my opinion this is one of those recipes.

The sweet, warm, buttery smell........

You have to give this one a go.

And it's super easy too!

Oh, yes, one more thing, you must use real butter for this, not margarine. You need the real buttery taste to make it so super yummy.

You will need:
8oz plain flour
8oz butter
4oz icing 
4oz cornflour
sugar for sprinkling over the top

~All you need to do is put all of the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until they are all mixed well. It will look like a fine powder rather than a biscuity dough.

~Tip into a rectangular tray-bake tray and press down until flat and smooth. My favourite tin for this is my Pampered Chef 'Medium Bar Pan'.

~Bake at about 170C for 30 minutes or so, until lightly golden.

~Cool slightly and slice into squares when still warm.

~Sprinkle generously with sugar.

~Savour it's delicious taste and bask in the warm glow of domesticity.


  1. Hi Kirsteen!
    Looks super duper yummy!
    I was just curious, is that actual icing or icing sugar?
