Maybe I like English Shortbread so much because my maiden name is Burton.
And it's really so simple ... just 3 ingredients. It's hard to understand why it tastes so great when it's so simple, but I think using high quality ingredients helps.
1 Cup Butter ♥ 1/2 Cup Sugar ♥ 2 1/2 Cups Flour
You mix the sugar and butter, add the flour and make a stiff dough...it will be a little crumbly. Roll it on a floured surface and cut it in the shapes you desire. I decided to make rings of it, so I used a plate...
...and I cut around the plate with a knife. Then I used a "Home Made" stamp on it.
Then into the oven it goes at 300 degrees for 30 minutes. You can put the pieces close together on the pan since it doesn't expand. And even if the pieces cook together, they will break apart along the cut lines.
I store mine in the frig since it has such a high butter content.
If you've never tried making shortbread, I think you'll enjoy it.
