Seeing the soft, melt-in-the-mouth texture of shortbread biscuits, many people tend to think that it contains eggs. But, actually it does not. Plain flour, sugar and butter are all that you need to make incredible Rich Shortbread Biscuits.
The crumbly texture and pleasant light colour of these eggless butter biscuits come from the generous use of butter. Since the dough will be a little soft, you must refrigerate it before cutting; otherwise it will be difficult to handle.
Serve with hot Elaichi Tea or coffee along with other evening tea snacks .
- Combine the butter and sugar in a deep bowl and cream it gently using a spatula.
- Add the vanilla essence and plain flour and knead into a soft dough without using any water. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 2 equal portions.
- Roll a portion of the dough into a 200 mm. (8”) diameter circle using a little plain flour for rolling.
- Cut into 8 small rounds of approx. 37 mm. (1½”) in diameter with the help of a round cookie cutter.
