How to Make Cinnamon Shortbread Bars

  • 1.In a food processor or mixie add butter and sugar. Cream them together till the butter is light. Note: It is essential for the butter to be at room temperature.

  • 4.Once the dough is ready, scrape it all out in a plate and with your hands press it together to make the dough compact.
  • 5.In a baking dish lay a butter paper and grease it with a drop of oil.
  • 6.Place the dough and spread it with a wooden spatula, equally on all sides. Level the dough with a flat instrument.
  • 7.Now cut the dough with a knife: 3 times vertically (Makes 4 columns) and 2 times horizontally (Makes 3 rows) to make 12 shortbread bars. (See picture)
  • 8.With a fork make marks on the bars twice or thrice. Bake at 170-180 degrees C for 20 minutes or till the shortbread is golden brown.
  • 9.Take out of the oven, let it cool completely. Cut the shortbread over the lines again, separate to make individual bars.
  • 10.Spread some nutella or peanut butter if you want. You can eat the shortbread without this too.
  • 11.Serve.
