Simple Shortbread Biscuits
My mixture made about 35 biscuits.

Ingredients:
250g butter
300g plain flour
150g icing sugar (I used half icing sugar and half brown sugar to give a bit of a caramel flavour)
1 cup cornflour (sorry, forgot to weigh this!)

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees and line baking trays with paper.
2. Melt butter for 5 minutes/60 degrees/speed 1-2.
3. Add remaining ingredients. Mix for 10-20 seconds/speed 4, scrape down sides of bowl and then knead for 2 minutes/interval speed.
4. Roll out dough to 1.5cm thickness and cut as desired. Prick biscuits with a fork and then bake for 20-30 minutes or until lightly golden.

I also sprinkled my biscuits with some raw sugar :)

mab19 - I made a half batch of these today using half icing sugar and half brown sugar as suggested.  They tasted nice.
