Shortbread biscuits

Shortbread biscuits are impossible to resist especially with their goldeny, buttery and crumbly texture. 

They are relatively quick and easy to make and with a baking time of just 17 minutes they are perfect golden morsels of goodness to enjoy on a lazy day with a cup of tea/coffee or as a dessert.

You only need basic ingredients too! Win win!



  • One tablespoon milk
  • 125 grams butter (butter tastes better than margarine) 
  • 175 grams sifted plain flour
  • 50 grams caster sugar


  1. Mix up the butter and sugar and flour until you get a crumbly texture.  
  2. Add the milk and knead the mixture until it is smooth and dough like.
  3. Form this into a big ball shape and wrap in cling foil. Place it in the fridge for 40 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  5. Then place the dough on a floured surface and roll out using a rolling pin.
  6. Use cookie cutters to create some shapes and place each shape on a baking tray. I put a piece of parchment paper on the baking tray to stop the dough sticking.
  7. Pop the tray into the oven and bake for 17 minutes.
  8. You will now have delicous, goldeny biscuits to indulge on 🙂

Tip : Shortbread biscuits taste greate with strawberries and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. They make an impressive dessert to serve with a pot of tea or coffee or even dessert wine 😉
