Shortbread Cookies


School will start on Monday, so I am starting to make some simple food for the Boys’ lunch box.  And today while the weather is not unbearable hot I decided to make this easy peasy cookies.  What I love about this cookies beside so easy to make, that they are not too sweet and they are just melting in your mouth 🙂

The original recipe is from my sister in law’s late mother.  Thanks for sharing Paige! 🙂 xx

Here is the recipe:


375gr plain flour
375gr butter
125gr icing sugar
125gr custard powder


Prepare oven 180C. Line tray with baking sheet.
Cream butter and sugar with mixer. Sift flour and custard and add to cream mixture. Mix until just combine. With a teaspoon make a ball and flattened it with the back of spoon. Add cherries or almond on top. Bake for 15 minutes or until cookies turn golden.
