These delicious little shortbread biscuits are easy to make and we serve them with fruit fools, compotes or just with a cup of tea.


  • 170 g/6 ozs/ cups flour
  • 110 g


Sieve the flour and sugar into a bowl and rub in the butter with the fingertips. Within a few minutes the mixture will start to come together, so gather it up and knead it lightly in the bowl. (This is a shortbread so do not use any liquid.)

Roll out to 7 mm/
