Christmas is coming...

Scary as it is Christmas is just around the corner and one thing that l really love is Christmas baking. I have been on the hunt for a traditional shortbread recipe, I had some spare time today so l thought l would give Margaret Fulton's recipe a try.

The biscuits are mouthwatering and l can see myself making them time and time again. They would make the perfect handmade Christmas gift.

2 Cups Plain Flour
1 Cup Corn Starch
1 Cup Icing Sugar
250g Butter Softened
Sugar to sprinkle on top

Heat oven to 160 Degrees

Beat Butter until it looks like whipped cream, slowly add the sifted icing sugar until combined.
Slowly add the remaining dry ingredients

Line a slice tray with baking paper, place mixture in the tray until and spread out evenly.
Poke the mixture decoratively with a fork and then sprinkle with sugar.

Place in oven and bake for 40 minutes until lightly browned.

While warm slice the biscuits but leave them in the tin until cool.
