ShortBread Cookies

I let out a little squeal when I tasted the fresh ones right out of the oven,“ How could I make something so YUM?” For someone so clumsy, it’s a big achievement to bake something so perfect.


A wonderful starting point for all your sweet adventures, here’s how you bake your own shortbread cookies-


300gm Flour

250gm Butter

160gm Sugar

50gm Almond Powder



1.Combine all the ingredients TOGETHER, and beat it with a spoon. You could also use an electric beater with a paddle adjustment. Mix it till you have a dough. Do not knead it too much

2.Refrigerate the dough for a little time (a couple of hours should be enough)

3.Take 2 butter papers, and place the dough between them. Sprinkle some flour so that the dough doesn’t stick to the papers.

4.Now roll the dough with a rolling pin to the desired thickness. Once this is done, take a cookie cutter to cut out the shapes.

5.Bake the cut-outs on a flour dusted tray for 12-15min at 180C





The cookies may seem simple to make, but don’t be fooled. Plus they are fabulous! Try them out, and let me know how they were!
