The Only Shortbread Recipe You Will Ever Need

I've been making this shortbread for years now and it is a firm favourite of the family. A real go-to recipe when you want a simple, quick and easy crowd pleaser. When I say easy I really mean it. So grab your apron, roll up your sleeves and try for yourself!


250g/90z Plain Flour

75g/30z Caster Sugar

175g/6oz Butter

Yes those really are the only ingredients you are going to need.


Get your oven ready and heating at 180 degrees.

Place all of the ingredients on to a clean surface and work together with your hands until you have a nice smooth dough. You can also do this in a mixing bowl if you prefer.

Once you have a nice smooth ball of dough, roll it out on a floured surface until approx 1/2 cm thick. Take whatever shape or size biscuit cutter you like and cut out the dough to form the biscuits.

Prick your biscuits with a fork and place on to a greased baking tray.

Pop in the oven for 10-15 mins or until lightly golden in colour.

Take out the oven and allow to cool slightly, then sprinkle with a light dusting of caster sugar.

Once cooled simply pop the kettle on, make yourself a pot of tea, put your feet up and enjoy...

For a zesty orange alternative, simply add the zest of 1 good sized orange to the ingredients at the beginning and continue the recipe as above. Trust me they will not disappoint!
