All-Butter Shortbread

Heylo Dare
Did you have a happy Valentine’s Day? Get anything nice? Give anything nice?
I made some all-butter shortbread – Mr Tree’s favourite.

1 lb plain flour
12 oz butter
6 oz caster sugar

Gas mark 2, or 140º for electric ovens for between 40 mins to 1 hour (depending on whether your oven is fan-assisted or not).

Basically, rub the ingredients together (or just tip into a mixing bowl with a kneading tool and let it mix till it turns into a pliable ball. I do this on a fairly slow setting).  Roll out and cut your biscuits. I have a cutter but you can easily make a paper template and cut round it with a knife.

Place on a baking tray giving them some room to spread. Cook till just golden and still slightly soft to touch.

Turn out onto a cooling rack, sprinkle with caster sugar and there you go. Made with love.

Mr Tree also got a family sized pack of mini eggs – a BIG treat.  Around easter he has to take a ten-step programme to get off them. I asked and asked if there was anything he wanted but he said No. He got everything he wanted at Christmas. He’s just not a materialistic kind of guy.

I, on the other hand, am a teeny bit the other way and got a gorgeous phone case and some New Shoes. *Sigh*

Have a happy day!
