shortbread biscuits

Hello reception,

I hope you have all  enjoyed the sunshine and had a lovely weekend.

On the weekends or school holidays I like to do  some baking with my daughter Lola.

Yesterday we made these shortbread biscuits, they were really easy and quick to make and were very tasty too.

Maybe you can make some with a grown up helping you. we did hearts, circles and butterfly shortbreads for a summer theme.

We kept our shortbreads plain but you could decorate yours with some icing cake pens.

All the ingredients you need:

200 grams Salted butter

100 grams Castor sugar

260 grams plain flour

1 egg yolk

(if you haven’t got salted butter you can use unsalted butter but add a pinch of salt to the mixture)

Method:

Mix the soft butter and sugar with a spoon until smooth,

Then add egg yolk and flour,

Bring it together with you hands into a ball,

Wrap in cling film and leave in the fridge for about an hour,

Roll it out and cut your shapes out, put them on baking paper on an oven tray,

Bake for 15 minutes at 200 degrees fan oven until slightly golden,

Leave to cool down for 15 minutes before you move them.

Hope you enjoy them, have fun and make sure you have a grown up to help you bake.

Have a lovely summer holiday.

Look forward to seeing you all in September.

From Mrs Parente.
