3 Ingredient Christmas Shortbread
I do love a good shortbread at Christmas time. And shortbread makes a really great food gift too for Grandparents and neighbours. This recipe only has three ingredients and is so simple, even the kids could make it.
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.
Add the butter and caster sugar to a mix master or similar and mix on high until creamed and light and fluffy.
Slowly add the plain flour, a little at a time to the mix. The mixture should resemble a thick dough.
Place the dough on a floured board and roll out to approximately 4mm thick. Use cookie cutters to cut out any shapes you desire.
Transfer the cookies to a cookie tray lined with baking paper.
Cook for 10 - 12 minutes. Remove from the tray and place the cookies on a rack to cool.
Recipe Hints and Tips:
- The dough can be frozen for up to two months. Once mixed, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze (with the use-by date).
