I received this recipe from a friend. It is by far, the tastiest and the easiest shortbread recipe. It also works very well in moulded shortbread pans. It's the only one I use. Freezes well too.


  1. Cream icing sugar and butter until fluffy.
  2. Combine flours and add to the butter mixture, in small portions.
  3. Turn batter out into a sided 15 x 9 cookie pan or jelly roll pan. Press to the sides and smooth with the back of a spoon.
  4. Score into bars with a sharp knife and prick the surface with a fork. Sprinkle with the 2 tbsp of sugar.
  5. Bake 10 minutes at 350°, then lower the oven to 300°. Bake for 30 - 40 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and immediately cut along the scored lines.
  7. Cool, then store in an airtight container.
