225 g of butter
150 g of icing sugar
350 g flour
2 heaped tsp of cornflour
2 small tsp vanilla


Have someone beat the butter and sugar together. Then add the vanilla and all the dry ingredients. Mix it all together then knead it well with your hands. Have someone roll the shortbread out flat then use pastry cutters to cut the shortbread into shapes. Place the shapes on a baking tray and cook slowly for about half an hour at 150 degrees Celsius. When cool you can decorate these with icing or just enjoy them as they are!


If you have Christmas shape cutters maybe your Shortbread Shapes could go on the Christmas dinner table as a treat for your family.
