Lazy Girls Shortbread



I named this the lazy girls shortbread as it only requires 3 ingredients and not a lot of effort... but tastes delicious! Variations can be made such as adding chocolate chips or spices but I am just going to share the basic version to show that baking doesn't have to be difficult at all :)

What You Will Need:

125g Unsalted Butter (At Room Temperature)
55g Caster Sugar
180g Plain Flour

Method:

Preheat oven to 180 degrees

Beat together the butter and sugar until smooth

Stir in sieved flour to form a dough

Cut into rounds, using a cutter and place onto a greased baking tray. Each round shound be approx 1cm thick

Sprinkle some more caster sugar onto each round

Bake for around 10- 15 mins  in the oven until they are golden thus depending on how big/thick you have made them (Best to keep an eye on them so that they don't over bake)

Cool on a wire rack and EAT!


See... told you it was simple! ;D

Happy Baking!
