A traditional shortbread with cinnamon and optional dried fruit making it extra tasty, excellent for an everyday bake.
- 50 g caster sugar
- 125 g butter softened
- 150 g flour I used a mixture of plain and self-raising, but best to use plain
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 55 g currants (or sultanas) optional
Preheat the oven to 180.
Place the sugar and butter in a bowl and mix together with a spoon or rub in with your hands.
Rub in the flour and cinnamon and bring the dough together with your hands.
Add the currants and mix through.
Line a small baking tray with baking paper, and press the dough into the tin. Use a fork to prick the dough.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until lightly golden (the cinnamon makes the shortbread darker than usual) and then allow to cool slightly.
Leave to cool for a few minutes, dust with caster sugar, then slice the shortbread into fingers in the tin.
Lift the baking paper and place on a cooling rack to cool completely.
