These are melt in your mouth delicious! Mostly I just dust the batches I make with sugar but for special occasions I drizzle over thin lines of chocolate.


  1. Cream butter and sugar.
  2. Sift dry ingredients and work into mixture til smooth but not greasy.
  3. Press into ungreased pan.
  4. Dough must be about 1 cm in thickness.
  5. Cut into fingers and bake at 140C for 1 hour.
  6. Watch from 45 minutes that the shortbread does not become too browned.
