Today’s blog is the recipe for the Valentine’s shortbread, I hope you all went out and bought your ingredients!! If not tut tut, get out and get them 🙂 you know you want to make these, think of the brownie points you will get for a maximum of an hours effort!
What you need . . .
– 8oz self raising flour
– 8oz soft margarine
– 4oz icing sugar
– 4oz cornflour
– 1tsp baking powder
What you need to do . . .
1. Cream together your icing sugar and margarine
4. Roll out and cut into shape on a slightly floured surface, not too much flour or it will dry out your dough, don’t forget to put a little flour on your rolling pin too (or wine bottle if you have no rolling pin)
Lift them out of the oven when they are golden brown and leave on the tray for about 5 mins, they will start to harden a bit then carefully move them to cool on a wire rack. However if they haven’t really hardened then put them back in the oven for a couple of minutes and repeat the process I said.
So there you go easy peasy, and even the kids can do it as you can see from the pics above. Let me know how you get on 🙂
Lots of love
