The best Shortbread in the universe

So my blog is my blog right? And I am more than my infertility aren't I? So in theory I can post about other stuff too...

Well, I am a mad keen baker. I loooove baking. It's my green space and I love to mix and beat and sift and stir, and then pull a warm yummy smelling something out the oven. It does my soul good!

So I thought I could occasionally post my favourite recipes. Not all of then as a girl's gotta have some secrets after all! Now this shortbread recipe is seriously good. You can make a double batch and then freeze half and then after defrosting serve it up as I did to a friend today and she raved about it.

The best Shortbread in the history of mankind
250g butter
185g sugar
375g plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
90g corn flour
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Sift flour, salt and cornflour together and add to creamed mixture. Mix in and kneed well (take your jewelry off and get those hands dirty!)
Roll or pat dough out to approx. 2cm thick. Cut into square/ fingers or cut shapes out. Place pieces on a cold buttered tray and prick with a fork. Sprinkle with sugar and bake at 160 - 170 C for approx 35min.
