Shortbread Biscuits

150g Plain Flour
100g Pure butter (more than 85% fat)
50g sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla essence
Set oven to 180 degrees temperature
In a bowel sift flour sugar and add butter chopped into small pieces followed by vanilla.
Begin to rub in the flour butter sugar and vanilla you will need to keep rubbing it in with your four fingers until the dough begins to form. (use breadcrumb method) you do not need any liquid for these biscuits just keep rubbing and the dough will begin to come together.
Once dough is formed wrap in cling film and place in refrigerator for 20 mins.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or the reusable lining sheet from Aldi stores.
Roll out balls of dough the size of a walnut and press gently down on baking sheet with a fork.
You can make any shape you like but I prefer rolling them out in balls and pressing them sown with a fork.
Bake for 15-20mins keep an eye on them as they burn easily.
Serve with a lovely cup of tea or some nice Carte Noire Coffee
You can double up the quantities as this only makes approx. 16 biscuits
