Christmas Shortbread

This Shortbread is simple to make, and are great to give as Christmas presents. To give the shortbread a Christmas theme they are dusted with cinnamon sugar! The shortbread recipe can be adapted to give different flavours. (e.g chocolate, cranberry or nuts can be added instead of Cinnamon)

175g unsalted butter
75g Castor sugar
200g plain flour
50g corn flour
cinnamon mixed with Castor sugar to dust

  1. Cut the butter into small chunks and add it to the food processor with the sugar. Whiz for about a minute or until the butter and sugar is pale and fluffy. 
  2. Add the flours and mix until the mixture is well combined. You may need to add a drop of milk to bring the mixture together as a dough.
  3. Wrap and chill the dough for a minim of 30 minutes. 
  4. Heat oven to C170 fan.
  5. Roll out the dough to 1 cm thick and cut out your desired shape. Prick with a fork.
  6. Put onto a greased sheet and cooked for 15 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and cool on a rack.
