Whipped Shortbread Biscuits April 29, 2012

Although these biscuits have the flavour of classic shortbread, the texture is much lighter. They literally melt in the mouth which makes them ideal for children. Although, for a smarter looking biscuit which is more appealing to adults, spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle and pipe the biscuits onto the baking sheet.

 

Ingredients

 

225g/8oz butter, slightly softened

75g/3oz icing sugar

175g/6oz plain flour

50g/2oz icing sugar

2 – 3 tsp lemon juice

sugar strands, chocolate drops, hundreds and thousands or silver balls

 

Method

 

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4.

Line baking sheets with baking parchment.

Cream the butter and icing sugar until fluffy

Gradually add the flour and continue beating for a further 2 – 3 minutes until its smooth and light.

Roll into balls and place on the baking sheet and bake for 8 – 10 minutes until just lightly browned.

Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Sift the icing sugar into a small bowl. Add the lemon juice and blend until a smooth icing forms.

Using a small spoon put a little icing on each of the biscuits and before it sets dip them into theĀ  sugar strands, chocolate drops, hundreds and thousands or silver balls.
