A crumbly and satisfying biscuit

We make a lot of shortbread at The Falcondale as it gets ordered often, as well as being provided with conferences.

Have you noticed that they sometimes change slightly… 🙂   well, the shape does!

Shortbread biscuits

Since we’re nearing Valentines, Mike decided to make heart shapes. Look out for Easter bunnies in a few months’ time…

Here’s the recipe


  • 1lb plain flour
  • 8oz butter
  • 1oz corn flour
  • 6oz caster sugar
  • and some more caster sugar for sprinkling on top


  • Blend all the above ingredients together until you have a soft dough
  • Roll out and cut to your desired shape
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 180 degrees until lightly browned


The above recipe is going to make a lot of biscuits. So, you may want to halve or quarter the recipe to suit your needs. Either way, they are very simple to make. Please let us know how you get on.
