    Noo's Note:

    So simple to make and so yummy. The dough will quite happily sit in the fridge for a week, so you can bake off as much as you want when you want.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put butter and sugar together in a bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Add flour and using your hands, gradually work it until the mixture forms a smooth dough. Roll into a sausage shape about 30cm long. Pat the sides to form either a square or a triangular log.
    2. 2
      Sprinkle a thick layer of demerara sugar on a piece of baking parchment. Press each side of the dough into the sugar to coat it.
    3. 3
      Wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes until firm.
    4. 4
      When ready to bake, preheat oven to Gas 3. Remove dough from cling film and cut into thick slices. Place slightly apart on a non-stick baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes, until they are just starting to brown.

      For the Americans: 6 oz butter = 12 tbsp (1 ½ sticks), 3.5 oz caster sugar = ½ cup white sugar, 9 oz plain flour = 2 cup all-purpose flour, and Gas Mark 3 = 325°F (160°C).

      A very nice shortbread cookie. I made mine into squares although I think my 'sausage' must have been longer than 30cm bc I ended up with nearly 40 little cookies - they still took 20 minutes to bake even though they were smaller than recommended.
