50g castor sugar
175g plain flour
Place all the ingredients in the mixer bowl and using a slow speed combine them until sticky.
Spoon into a 20cm (8inch) round flan ring placed on a baking sheet. Press down using the back of a spoon to smooth the surface. Prick lightly with a fork and divide into portions marking halfway through the shortbread with a sharp knife.
Bake in a cook oven (150 degrees C, 300 degrees F, Gas mark 2) for 40-50 mins.
Remove the flan ring carefully and cool the shortbread on a wire tray.
Dredge the shortbread with castor sugar.
