Buttery Christmas Shortbreads!

Hey and welcome back! Doing a little bit of a different post today, I have done lots of Christmassy things today which I will share in Sundays blogmas post. I wanted to do a makeup look today but I ran out of time so I thought I would share these that a baked today. I am in no way a chef and definitely in no way good at decorating as you can see but I love shortbread and they are really easy to make, fun and very yummy!   

250g Butter
110g Caster Sugar
360g Plain Flour

This is a big mixture which I usually get around 19 biscuits. I have to make a large amount else they don't last very long in my house!

1. Cream the sugar and butter together. I sometimes warm the butter very slightly first to soften it if its been in the fridge.

2. Sift in the flour and stir all the mix together until its smooth.

3. Roll out onto a work surface 1cm thick and cut out your shapes.

4. Pre heat your oven to 190oc

5. Place your shapes onto a grease proof tray (you may need two) sprinkle with a little sugar and chill in the fridge for 20mins.

6. Bake in the oven for 15-20mins until they turn a pale gold colour.

7. Place them to cool then have fun decorating!

So there is my buttery shortbread biscuits hope you like and try them out!
