DIRECTIONS

  • The ingredients need to be cold before you start.
  • Place the flour in a bowl with a little salt, to taste.
  • Then throw in the butter and use your fingertips to rub it into the flour until you get a crumbly, sand-like texture.
  • Mix in the egg yolk and egg, just until they are both incorporated.
  • At this point the dough will be wet and difficult to roll out.
  • Lay some clingfilm on your counter and place the dough on top.
  • Cover with more clingfilm.
  • Roll lightly to flatten, then leave to rest in the fridge for at least one hour.
  • Shape as desired, then cook at 150 C or 300 F until golden.
  • For a round shortbread using all the dough, this will probably take about 30 minutes.
