National Shortbread Day

What can you do with three simple ingredients? Make simple Scottish shortbread! Sweet, crumbly, and goes with practically any tea. On National Shortbread Day (January 6),  you can celebrate by making this simple recipe! 

170g all purpose flour (1 ⅜ cup)

60g caster sugar (about ⅓ cup)

120g unsalted butter (about 8 ½ tablespoons)

Preheat oven to 170 deg C or 338 deg F (or 340-345 depending on your oven) and lightly grease or line an 8″ or 9″ square cake pan.

Sift flour and sugar together into a large bowl. With clean hands or a pastry blender, rub the butter into the mixture until it comes together as a dough (if squeezed in hand should keep its shape) then press it into the bottom of the prepared tin spreading it evenly and prick all over with a fork. Bake for 15-20 mins or until golden brown.

Enjoy with your favorite cup of tea and have a Happy National Shortbread Day!
