Delicious Shortbread Shapes

Acorns Home Activities:
Today we have a fun cooking activity from Acorns ONS to get the children baking.
Delicious Shortbread Shapes

You will need
• 60g plain flour
• 40g butter, cut into cubes, softened
• ½ tsp vanilla extract
• 20g caster sugar
1. Preheat the oven 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
2. Put the flour and butter into a mixing bowl and rub together with your fingers until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the vanilla and sugar.
3. Squeeze the mixture into a ball with your hands. Sprinkle a work surface with flour and roll the dough out to a 0.5cm thickness.
4. Use a biscuit cutter to cut out fun shapes and place on the baking tray. Re-roll any leftover dough to make more biscuits.
5. Bake the biscuits for 12-15 minutes or until pale golden-brown.
We would love to see your delicious finished biscuits!
