Mel’s Traditional Shortbread Recipe
Here's my traditional shortbread recipe as promised. I have been baking this recipe for years (too long to count) and is very much a favourite in our house. I always make a double batch as they disappear way too quick.
Mel's Traditional Shortbread Recipe

180 grams of margarine

1/2 cup of caster sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

1/2 cup of self raising flour

1 and 1/2 cups of  plain flour

Preheat oven to 180C. Cream margarine and caster sugar together. Add the egg and vanilla essence and beat again. Add the two lots of flour and mix through. Knead the mixture into a ball. Lightly flour a board and knead the mixture until it is smooth without any cracks. Roll it out until it is about 1/2cm thick. Using biscuit cutters, cut the dough into shapes and place them on a foil covered tray. Bake for about 10 - 15 minutes or until golden brown.
