Shortbread

250g SR Flour
185g Butter
90g Sugar
60g Semolina or Ground Rice - I used semolina

1. Preheat oven to 200 deg. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
2. Put all the ingredients into the TM bowl and mix for 15 - 20 seconds on speed 6.
3. Set the dial to knead and knead on for 20 seconds or until the mixture comes together.
4.Tip the mixture onto a silmat and bring it together into a ball.  Wrap in cling wrap and put into the fridge for 1/2 hour.
5. Roll into a sausage shape and cut into pieces.
6. Place on baking trays and prick the tops with a fork.   Sprinkle with sugar if desired.

Turn the oven down to 150 deg and bake for 1/2 hour, then turn the oven down again to 120 deg and bake for a further 1/2 hour.

My oven temperature fluctuates so mine biscuits cooked a bit quicker than the stated time.
