Classic Shortbread

An old favourite: delicious and incredibly easy to make. Our Jersey butter is perfect for this recipe, as the high melting point stops the shortbread from feeling greasy.

125g / 4oz Longley Farm Jersey Butter (half a stick)

55g / 2oz caster sugar (plus extra for sprinkling on at the end)

180g / 6oz plain flour



1. Heat the oven to 190C / 375F / Gas mark 5

2. Beat the butter and sugar together until smooth

3. Stir in the flour to make a smooth paste. Turn onto a worktop and carefully roll out until the paste is about 1cm or half an inch thick

4. Cut into your favourite shape (rounds, fingers, hearts, cows...) and place on a baking tray.

5. Sprinkle with caster sugar and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes

6. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until pale golden-brown

7. Allow to cool - then enjoy!
