Shortbread Recipe

This year I finally did something for Comic Relief and baked some cupcakes and made some shortbread.

The cupcakes I made are Vanilla with Vanilla frosting and different coloured sprinkles on top. I would have done more of a Red theme for ‘Red Nose Day’, but as I was on a tight budget they were made as they were.

Red Nose Day Cupcakes minus any red of noses...

But this post is about shortbread not cupcakes. I found the recipe online from the BBC website and they’re surprisingly easy to make. I halved the amounts the BBC gave. Here goes.

Shortbread Recipe

Recipe Makes: 12

• 65g butter
• 27g brown caster sugar
• 90g plain flour

• Heat the oven to 190C.
• Beat the butter and sugar together until smooth.
• Stir in the flour to a smooth paste.
• Turn on to a work surface and gently roll out until the paste is 1cm thick.
• Cut into rounds or fingers and place onto a baking tray.
• Sprinkle with caster sugar and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
• Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until pale golden-brown.
• Cool on a wire rack before enjoying.

I completely forgot to take a photo of these but there is a photo on the BBC website link above.

In total with these two bakes, with the help of my wonderful family we raised £25 for Comic Relief.
