Eat Sum More (Shortbread Cookies)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

I found this recipe on-line from the blog of Lizel Salter, author of "Recipes from South Africa" and here is her description of the recipe: "This is a fantastic recipe for shortbread, a speciality of the Scottish. It is one of South Africa’s favourites and this is a recipe for home-made shortbread." The recipe doesn't indicate the amount this makes, so I am guessing at the amounts.


  1. Mix all the ingredients together and roll (should look like a long sausage).
  2. Cut into circles and place on a baking sheet.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F and bake for about 10 minutes. If not totally baked, bake for another 10 minutes.

These were really good...everyone that tried them enjoyed them...i think it needs more sugar, a little lemon extract & i probably should cut them thicker...& possibly undercooking it? that should make them exactly like Atlanta Bread Co. (ABC has THE best shortbread cookies!!) I made a half batch...measured ingredients by weight. 250g ap flour, 63g powdered sugar, 2 sticks of butter, 1/8 tsp. salt. I also used a hand mixer on low until it came together. Very easy to make! Thanks for posting!!:0)

Shortbread are my #1 favourite treat (yes, even beats chocolate). This recipe was gorgeous, delivering a wonderful biscuit/cookie with a buttery crunch, I made them today - will there be any left by tomorrow afternoon???. Made for ZWT8, The Fearless Red Dragons
