Scrumptious sparkly shortbreads

It's been so long since I've posted a recipe, In all honestly it's been a long time since I've baked anything and I'm starting to miss it. I used to bake so much but Ironically since I started working in a bakery shop (where we don't actually bake) but I've baked less.
This is a short bread recipe that I've used since I was a young age, It's so simple and quick to make so it's a perfect recipe if your baking for a party or if your simply baking for the fun of it.

4oz Butter at room temperature
4oz Caster sugar
6oz Plain flour
Extra Caster sugar for sprinkling

Firstly measure out your butter and put it into the bowl get yourself a wooden spoon and beat the butter to soften it. Next add in the sugar and mix together with the butter. Sieve in your flour (I would add it in gradually so when you mix the flour it won't go everywhere!) Mix all the ingredients well and once your done it should look like the picture below.

Sprinkle your sugar onto the surface and start rolling out your mixture. Grab yourself some cutters and depending on the size of your cutters it should roughly make about 12 biscuits. 
Then bake your biscuits for 30 mins at a temperature of 150c.

You can buy edible glitter from pretty much anywhere that sells cake decorating products. I purchased mine from Lake land (which is like heaven if you love to bake) they have quite a few different colours to choose from. 

These would also be perfect for Christmas too! 

Once everything is done there's only one more thing left to do EAT EAT EAT :)
Oh and the washing up but eating is much more fun!
