3 Ingredient Shortbread

Here is a super simple, super yummy recipe for Shortbread, and yes, it only has 3 ingredients... SCORE!!!!

3 Ingredient Shortbread

  • 1 Cup Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Icing Sugar (Powdered Sugar)
  • 2 Cups Flour
Cream the butter and Icing sugar. Mix in the flour and combine until a dough forms.
I then took bits of the dough and flattened it out on the counter with a little flour as the dough was a bit sticky.

Cut into desired shapes and bake at 180'C for about 15 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with normal sugar.
