Makes 12 biscuits, 10mins prep, 15-20 mins cooking

Our delicious, buttery Shortbread biscuits are the perfect accompaniment to a nice cup or tea or coffee and will go down a storm in the office if you feel like sharing!


  • 150g plain white flour
  • 100g butter
  • 50g caster sugar
  • pinch of salt


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

2. Sieve together the flour and salt, then mix together with the butter and sugar using a wooden spoon to form a smooth paste.

3. Roll out the mixture on a floured surface to approx ½ cm thick and cut into your chosen shape. 

4. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper (or a silicone mat if you have own) and mark with a fork if so desired – if gives a nice professional look.

5. Bake in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes until the biscuits are a light brown colour. Once cooked place on a cooling wire and sprinkle with sugar.
