Shortbread Biscuit

On the the 12th day of Christmas we make and consume delicious buttery shortbread!  For Christmas there's nothing nicer than a cup of tea at the end of the day and a delicious shortbread to dunk and then melt in your mouth!  This is a truly simple recipe and one that can be used for any time of the year when you need some shortbread goodness!


  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 cup cornflour
  • 250g butter (at room temperature).

Mix all the ingredients into one bowl until a dough is formed.

Place the dough in between two sheets of baking paper and roll out to 1cm thickness.

Cut out into Christmas shapes or a traditional rectangular short bread biscuit size and place in a moderate oven until golden (but not burnt!).

You can sprinkle granulated sugar on top of the short bread if you like a little extra sweetness.
