Express shortbread biscuits

Express shortbread biscuits

Preparation : 5 minutes | Cooking : 15-20 minutes

For about thirty cookies (depending on the size of your cookie cutters)

Ingredients :
  •     250g of flour (9 oz)
  •     120g sugar (4.25 oz)
  •     120g butter (4.25 oz)
  •     1 tbsp of spices (4 spices for example)
  •     1 egg
  •     a pinch of salt
  •     1 sachet of vanilla sugar (optional)
Cooking method
1/ In the bowl of your robot, mix all the ingredients for about 30 seconds so that the mixture is well homogeneous.

2/ Form a ball of dough and put it in the fridge for 15 minutes, if you don’t have time, you can work the dough right away by adjusting it with flour if it becomes too soft.

3/ Roll out the dough on a floured work surface. If it is too hard, wait a moment and knead it a little.

4/ Preheat the oven to 160°c (320°F).

5/ On a clean floured surface, roll out portions of dough to about 5mm thick. If the dough sticks to the roller, add a little flour on top.

6/ Prepare a baking sheet covered with baking paper and place the cut shapes on it with a cookie cutter.

If you have a convection oven (with fan), you can prepare several baking trays and put them in the oven at the same time.

7/ Bake the shortbread biscuits in the oven at 160°c (320°F) for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

8/ Let the shortbread cool on a rack.

9/ You can stuff the biscuits with jam. I used raspberry jelly and white sugar icing to make them more festive for the Christmas holidays.
