Traditional family favourite. You can use biscuit cutter cut into shapes of your choice and have it plain or dust them with sifted icing sugar to coat.
This also can be transformed to other biscuit recipes such as melting moments biscuit base or really any biscuit base with use of imagination. You can add choc bits for choc chip cookies, raspberry centres and so on.
Simple easy biscuit recipe anyone can make - 08 Sep 2009
I found 220 far too hot and they burnt underneath. Good flavour. I added a little salt at the end before baking and next timr I'll add a bit of vanilla and only cook at 170-180. - 19 Apr 2015
These shortbread biscuits were yummy. The things i'd change would be use 200g sugar, 225g flour and bake for 20 minutes. My nan and granddad came round when i was making up the mixture (my nan was a baker) and she said use those measurements and they turned out YUMMY. They were gone within 10 minutes, and my baby sister approved (she's hard to impress). Definitely going to be added to my favourites! - 23 Feb 2013 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
