This is a really easy shortbread biscuit recipe. They are brilliant for snacks and gifts.
Our 9 year old son makes these all on his own with us only helping our with the oven. He can even put them in the oven under close supervision.
150g plain flour
Pre-heat the oven to 150c
Chop the butter into small pieces and rub together with the flour in a mixing bowl until you get small crumbs
Add the sugar to the bowl and mix it together to make a dough
Wrap the dough in clingfilm, and place in the fridge for 30 minutes
Roll out until they are a few centimetres thick and cut out into shapes and place on baking parchment on a baking tray
Bake in the pre-heated oven for 7-10 minutes - keep checking to make sure they don't overcook, all ovens can be different
Once cooked, leave to cool on a wire rack
