Melt-In-Your-Mouth Shortbread

This recipe is ultra simple if you have a set of kitchen scales that measures in ounces, as there are only three ingredients and they are all measured in multiples of 4!

4 oz (114g) castor sugar
8 oz (227g) butter, melted
12 oz (340g) plain/all purpose flour

Preheat oven to 180ºC (355ºF).
Mix ingredients together thoroughly, press into 16cm x 27cm (7"x11") baking pan.
Bake for 30 minutes (shortbread will be golden around the edges).
Sprinkle generously with castor sugar and cool in pan.  When cooled, cut into squares and enjoy!!

This is the one I make, but I often add lemon juice to give it a tangy taste plus nuts, usually macadamia nut. Must make some when I get home.

This sounds easy enough for me to do. Thank you Clara for this recipe.

This shortbread is so yummy! I remember it from when you visited us. I really need to try my hand at it, though it will be a challenge with no really accurate scales. Hmmm. :-)
