Oh my goodness.. this little devil is so so addictive that my little girl cant stop eating em.. she munches on it while watching telly.. she munches on it when i place em in her lunch box.. i hv to keep myself fm munching on it too cos its so so delish.. so buttery and yes if u know how the Walker's brand Shortbread tastes like.. u might just want to bake this urself... bake it for ur open house.. bake it for ur kids.. u will love me for this! Thank you dear Anie for repeatedly baking it and for making me drool each time u describe it.. ohhh i simply love it! err now i sound like some kinda commercial advertisement on telly hahaha
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1/3 c. powdered (icing) sugar
1/4 tsp. fine grain (table) salt - (I used fleur de sel.. Ohhh lalaaaa)
3/4 c. butter (1 1/2 sticks) (I used SCS)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence (I added)
Using a food processor, combine flour, sugar, and salt. Pulse the ingrdedients once or twice just to thoroughly combine them.
Chop butter into large chunks and distribute evenly around the food processor bowl.
Replace the lid and process for 30-90 seconds, until the dough resembles fine crumbs.
Roll dough into a ball and chill it in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 160 deg C.
Take dough out of the fridge and roll it and cut into 1inch(w) x 3 inches (l), prick with a fork and bake it on a lined tray for abt 15-20 mins or until golden brown.
So ok.. got to go.. enjoy the recipe and let me know if u do bake em.. am thinking of baking a cake later to welcome my dear hubs fm Vietnam. hmmm on second thought.. maybe i shud bake pound cake for myself instead ahaks
