Easy shortbread biscuits

I am always trying to find easy recipes so I can make it quickly and this is definitely one of them.


  • 150g plain flour
  • 100g butter
  • 50g icing sugar


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  • Chop butter into small cubes.

  • Put flour, butter and icing sugar together into a bowl and mash them with your fingers until they mix.

  • Now kneed the mixture to form a firm dough.
  • Roll out the dough onto the bench and put some plastic wrap over it.

  • Use a rolling pin to make it flat around 1 cm high

  • Use a cookie cutter and cut them into your favourite shapes.

  • Line a tray with baking paper and grease it lightly.
  • Put the cut cookies onto the baking tray. Make sure you leave enough room (at least 1 cm) between the cookies as they will expand.

  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Do not let the cookies go brown

  • Take the cookies out of the oven and rest for 2 hours.
  • Serve the cookies with tea or coffee or place them in an air tight container for later.

Have a great day everyone.

  2. I like shortbread cookies! They are buttery good! Thanks for this recipe which does seem not too difficult! My Mom used to take a fork and prick the dough to make a pattern then sprinkled either granulated or powdered sugar on them after they baked. It stuck into the holes. 🙂

  3. This does look very easy! We just got an oven, so I’m looking for recipes to try that are beginner-friendly 🙂
