    Very simple, only three ingredients, but very addictive. This recipe doesn't make a huge batch because it is not as good the next day.

    Serves: 12 

    • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
    • 1/3 cup (90g) white sugar
    • 185g butter

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. Blend all ingredients well. Dough will be stiff.
    3. Press into a 23cmx23cm buttered cake pan. Prick top with a fork. Mark into 24 squares.
    4. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until pale golden brown on the edges. Whilst still warm cut into squares.
