Recipe's preparation

    Grandma's Shortbread
  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees.

    Place sugar into mixing bowl and mill for 10 seconds on speed 9.

    Add cornflour, plain flour and butter.  Mix for 10-15 seconds on speed 6. Mixture should appear crumbly. (Tip: this crumbly mixture is great as the topping on a fruit crumble)


  2. Knead 35-45 seconds, closed lid position/interval speedDough mode.  Mixture should ocme together to form into a soft dough.

  3. Turn out dough onto Thermomat and shape into a long square log.  Cut into 5mm slices.  (Shortbread can be pricked with a fork for decoration)

  4. Place evenly onto a baking tray (covered with baking paper).

  5. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes until a light golden colour.



If you use Gluten Free flour, it makes an even lighter, shorter Shortbread.  And I thought I couldn't improve on this recipe.  I made this recently for my Gluten free friend and really enjoyed how yummy it was.  Try it!!!  You won't be disappointed.

    Same recipe as my husband's grandmother! Had to knead a bit longer before it came together, but no stickiness on my silicone mat at all

    sorry but as soon as I press new comment the stars disappear. Definitely 5 ⭐️

    I baked both flour and gluten free flour to compare. Gluten free is very crumbly but had a good taste. The normal flour biscuits were very good.
