Butter is one of my favorite cooking staples. I use it in all types of meals but especially in baking. Recently I was kindly sent some butter from Wykes Farm, so I thought we would make our favourite buttery treat. They are simple to make, use little ingredients and are fun for little ones to make.
125g unsalted butter, cubed
55g caster sugar
180g plain flour
Jam of your choice
1. Preheat the over to 200C.
2. Mix together the butter and caster sugar until smooth. Add the flour and beat until it mixes together.
3. On a lightly floured kitchen side, split the shortbread dough into 12 equal size balls. Make a indent with your thumb in each one. Fill with jam and place in the fridge for 15 minutes.
4. Grease a flat baking tray and place the shortbread thumbprints with space between each one. Cook in your preheated over for 15 minutes or until pale brown.
