Shortbread for dummies

Whoot whoot…finally after over half a lifetime of dreaming I have tickets to see Rod Stewart live!!!!! Brisbane on 22 February 2012 (204 sleeps to go).  In honour of this auspicious occasion a Scottish recipe is in order…. and what could be more Scottish than short bread.  This recipe is easy peasy …remember to be light and gentle with the mix.

Rod Stewart
  • 1 Cup icing Sugar
  • 250 grams soft Butter (do not use margarine)
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • ½ Cup Cornflour
  • Pinch of Salt
  1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Dont take a shortcut here or you will end up with pastry!!!
  2. Quickly work in flour cornflour and salt.
  3. Roll out 5mm thick and cut into shape or make a log and cut into 5mm slices.
  4. Bake at 150ºC until light brown

Enjoy with a glass of Scotch Whisky while listening to Rod Stewart (or watching one of his DVD’s) for an authentic Scottish experience.
