Shortbread

Audrey Falconer, 14 May 08, comment to ‘Butter Bombs’

Your butter bombs are very close to my mother’s “shortbread”. I pipe them out with a star nozzle and stick a chocolate button in the middle before baking….

My recipe is:

250 g butter, lightly salted
60 g icing sugar
125 g plain flour
125 self-raising flour

No frosting required. Delicious. Note that the recipe is really just ratios and easily adapts to any weight.
