We all think our grandmothers are the best at baking.... but my grandmother actually is the BEST baker around, she makes the most amazing quiches, tarts, biscuits and of course, cakes. This is our family recipe, and of course it is in pounds as she's been baking before metric came in!
This is very easy to follow and I am sure you can all do it... Good luck if you give it a go!
· 6oz plain flour
· 4oz softened butter
· 2oz caster sugar
· Add all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix. Don’t worry at first it will look very crumbly but take it out of the bowl knead it on a floured surface, soon it will look like a dough like consistency.
· Next, flour your work surface to ensure the shortbread won’t stick. Then roll out the dough to ½” – ¾” thick.
· Then cut it into desired shapes and place on a greased baking tray.
· Bake for 15-20 mins at 150 until golden brown.
