I always love the shortbreads and wanted to prepare this sometime. So I thought I will prepare this for cooking medley’s JFI event in which the main ingredient is Ghee and Butter. I think my entry is a bit late and I hope she will accept it.
I searched for this recipe in the net and found lots.. This is the one I picked and tried and it came out really well. My daughter loved it because I had used different shapes.
Butter- 1 cup(room temperature)
All purpose flour- 2 cups
Sugar- ½ cup(powdered)
Cornstarch- 1 tsp
Salt- 1 pinch
Mix butter and sugar and beat it for 5 minutes till they are well mixed and the mixture is creamy.
Mix and seive flour, salt and cornstarch.
Add the flour mixture to the the butter. Fold in gently to make a dough.
Refrigerate for 15 minutes to make the dough a bit firm.
Roll out the dough into ¼ inch thick. Cut into round or whichever shape u want using a cookie cutter.
place them in the cookie sheets lined with parchment paper(I used foil because I was out of stock). Bake in a preheated oven for 12-15 minutes at 300 degrees F.Cool this and store in a airtight jar.
Note: Please Use only butter for this recipe. Do not use margarine or anything else in substitution for butter.
