Quick And Easy Shortbread

If you fancy something sweet but there's nothing at home, this is the perfect thing!

Recipe By: Torajiro Kuruma (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/62)
Serves 2 Prep: 15 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Butter 80g
Granulated sugar 35g
Self Raising Flour 120g
Salt        a pinch
Vanilla extract a few drops

Method

1
Melt the butter in a bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds, then add the sugar and vanilla extract. Stir well.
2
Add the flour and mix well to make a soft dough. Place in a plastic bag or wrap in cling film and massage to mix thoroughly. Leave for one hour.
3
Preheat the oven 180C. Divide the mixture and make 6 flattened balls.
4
Put tin foil or a baking sheet onto a baking tray and lay out the 6 biscuit shapes.
5
Bake for 10 minutes. The biscuits will still seem soft after 10 minutes, but will harden as they cool.
6
These biscuits are delicious when hot but nicer when they're cool and even better the next day.

Tips & Note

Some people say it's good to leave the dough in the fridge before baking, but it's also ok to not even leave it at all and just bake straightaway.
