2 cup butter (Room temperature)
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups plain flour
pinch of salt

Instructions :

  1. Preheat the oven to 325˚F.
  2. In a bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and salt until combined.
  3. Mix in the flour gradually until combined.
  4. Bring the mixture together using your hands to make a dough.
  5. Grease a (12 inch) square baking tray with butter and line with parchment paper.
  6. Spread out the dough on the tray, prick the shortbread with a fork, creating rows. Also run a knife between each row of fork tines to make cutting the shortbread easier after it’s baked. (see images below)
