Scrumptious Shortbread Biscuits


I spent this bank holiday baking some short breads (Oh and going to the cinema so see Pitch Perfect 2 which I loved!) From ever since I started baking short breads I had  been using the same recipe from the same baking book but this time I thought I should go and try a different recipe.
So searching through the internet I found this one and wanted to share it with you because the end result was very very yummy!

For Ingredients you will need

  • 115g Butter
  • 55g caster Sugar 
  • a pinch of Salt
  • 40g Ground rice 
  • 130g Plain flour 
Measure up the amount of butter you need put it into your bowl and beat until soft then add in your sugar and salt and mix that all in. 
Sift in the flour and the ground rice and mix into a smooth dough if it doesn't seem smooth to you it won't hurt adding in a bit more butter.
Grab yourself a cake baking tray (15cm) and line it with grease proof paper. The trick is to try and handle the mixture as little as possible. Make your mixture into a dough and place onto the grease proof paper flatten it out (gently) with your hands. 


I decided to add a few chocolate drops to mine. I also took a knife and roughly outlined where I would cut once it was ready just so it was easier to see where to cut. Once your done place it in the fridge for about 15 minutes or so and then after that put it in the oven for an hour, 

And there you have yourself some very tasty shortbread biscuits. 
Oh don't forget to add in that extra naughty bit of sugar and just sprinkle it on top of the biscuits, definitely makes a difference having sprinkled sugar on top!
