The Best shortbread on this planet

This actually is the best shortbread on this planet, tremendous fast to make, mild and buttery and is so good with an enormous mug of tea. This model is a chocolate chip one however I like swapping common caster sugar for lavender or vanilla infused sugar to make it that little bit extra extravagant. 

To make 9 chunky squares or 12 ( virtually ) bitesize items you’ll need 

250g unsalted softened butter 
125g caster sugar
250g plain flour
125g cornflour
50-75g chocolate  chips

  • Preheat your oven to 150c /300f and grease an eight inch sq. tin
  • In a bowl cream the butter and sugar until mild and fluffy
  • Add within the plain flour, corn flour and chocolate chips and blend along with a picket spoon until it simply begins to return collectively. Use your arms to flippantly press all of it collectively*
  • Switch the dough into the greased tin and gently press it out into the entire of the tin.
  • Prick it throughout with a fork, and place within the oven for 50 -55 minutes until it is flippantly golden throughout.
  • While its nonetheless a bit of heat (not scorching) sprinkle a bit of caster sugar throughout and as soon as cooled, lower into 9 chunky items or 12 smaller virtually bitesize items. 
* If you happen to want you possibly can wrap the dough in cling movie, let it chill for about 10 minutes within the fridge, then on a flippantly dusted floor, roll out to about an inch thick and switch to the tin
