Cinnamon Shortbread

Perfect alongside a hot cup of tea or coffee.

  • 65g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 large egg

Step 1

Tip the flour into a food processor.

Step 2

Cut the butter into small pieces and drop them into the bowl. Mix until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. If you do not have a food processor, add the butter and flour to a mixing bowl and combine until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Step 5

To bake, preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/ gas 5. Roll the dough to 3mm thickness on a lightly dusted surface.

Step 6

Cut out the biscuits using a cutter stamp and place them on a greased baking tray.

Step 7

Place in the middle shelf of the oven and bake for approximately 8 minutes or until lightly browned.

Step 8

Transfer the biscuits onto a cooling rack to cool.
