Nicola loves making shortbread with her Mum. She has lots of fun cutting the shapes.

250g unsalted butter
1 cup icing sugar
1 cup cornflour
2 cups plain flour

Mix the butter and icing sugar until it's light and fluffy. Add the cornflour and the plain flour together and mix everything into a creamed mixture. Knead well. On a lightly floured board roll out the mixture to 1.5 cm thickness. Use whatever shape you like or is your favorite (Nicola  likes the shape of a gingerbread man and a star). Place the shapes on a greased oven tray.  Bake at 150 degrees Celcius for 30 minutes or until golden. 

You can serve it with a cup of tea or coffee when your friends, grandma or grandpa come to visit. Enjoy!
