Traditional Scottish Shortbread

Traditional Scottish Shortbread is a recipe which has always been in my family. I hope the below recipe tastes as good to you as it does to me. Simple to make and well worth the effort.

Ingredients :
100g Butter
150g Plain Flour
50g Caster Sugar

The How-To:

Preheat oven to 150C
Rub the flour and butter together using your hands. You can use a food processor however I prefer doing it by hand. Continue until everything comes together.
Add the sugar and work this through the mixture. Knead until you can form it into a ball.
Place this ball of mixture onto a piece of grease proof paper on a baking tray. Flatten to form a disc about half an inch thick. 
Use a knife to mark the disc into triangles. Do not cut all the way through. Prick each triangle 3 times with a fork.
Bake in oven for 30 mins. They should be a light golden colour. 
Take out, Sprinkle with a little caster sugar and leave to cool.

Your done!
