Shortbread Biscuits

Assalaamu alaykum

Today I'd like to show you how to make Shortbread Biscuits.
These are very nice to have with a cup of tea.
Perhaps you could make them for Iftar inshaAllah.

Ingredients:
110g buttter (at room temperature)
50g caster sugar
175g plain flour (sifted)


Preheat your oven to Gas Mark 2, 300F, 150C.

Put all the ingredients into a bowl and rub together until
a breadcrumb like mixture is left.

 Squeeze the mixture together to form a big ball of dough like below.


Sprinkle caster sugar on to your work surface,
then roll out your dough over it.

Cut out circle using a fluted cutter or you could
use any shaped cutter if you prefer.

 Lay out the biscuits on a baking sheet, prick each
biscuit with a fork. Bake on a highish shelf in the oven
for 30 mins.


Cool the biscuits on a wire rack, dust them with caster sugar
and store in an airtight tin, to keep them crisp. 


Serve with tea and enjoy!

You could also add a heaped teaspoon of cocoa powder
to the mixture for something different.
