Delicious low calorie shortbread, perfect for a 'not so naughty' snack.

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (160°C fan, 350°F, gas mark 4). Lightly grease and base line a 20cm (8") round tin.

  2. Put the butter into a large bowl and mix with the sugar. Beat until light and fluffy.

  3. Gradually add the plain flour until it almost becomes like pastry dough. Dust a surface with a little flour and lightly knead the dough. Roll out to about 2cm thick.

  4. Using your hand. shape the dough and ease into the tin. Pinch the edging to make a scallop edge for the shortbread and prick with a fork. Score the dough into 8 slices.

  5. Place on a greased baking sheet and put your dough into the fridge for about half an hour. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until beginning to go golden brown. Leave to cool and enjoy.
