While a good shortbread biscuit is worth the trip to the bakery, we love to get into the kitchen and create our own. These shortbread biscuits are fun to make and go perfectly with tea or coffee or as an after dinner snack.
approx. 20 biscuits
125g (1/2 block) Fairy margarine, softened
80g (1/2 cup) icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
150g (1 cup) plain flour, sifted
35g (1/4 cup) cornflour, sifted
Pre-heat oven to 150°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Cream Fairy, icing sugar and vanilla essence together until light and fluffy.
Fold through the flours until the mixture comes together.
Knead lightly and roll out on a floured bench to approx. 1 cm thick.
Cut the shortbread into desired shapes, stars, hearts or cut into fingers.
Place onto the prepared tray. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly coloured.
