Ingredients for Shortbread Recipe:
- 375g of plain flour
- 250g of butter
- 125g of granulated sugar
- A dash of vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
Method for Making Shortbread:
Begin by placing the plain flour into a mixing bowl. Add the room temperature butter to the bowl and combine the two ingredients. Then, incorporate the granulated sugar and vanilla extract into the mixture. Use your hands to thoroughly mix the ingredients until a dough forms.
Prepare your baking tins by lining them with greaseproof paper. This will prevent the shortbread from sticking and make it easier to remove from the tins once baked.
Roll out the shortbread dough to a thickness of approximately 1/2 inch. For petticoat tails, press the dough into the tin until it becomes flat. To create shortbread fingers, roll out the dough and shape it neatly.
To enhance the texture and taste of the shortbread, use a fork to poke holes in both the petticoat tails and shortbread fingers. This technique will make the shortbread crispier and enable it to absorb moisture, resulting in a delightful buttery flavor. Sprinkle a generous amount of granulated sugar over the dough for an added touch of sweetness.
Place the prepared shortbread in the HYSapientia air fryer oven and bake at 180 degrees for approximately 15 minutes. Keep an eye on them to ensure they don't overcook.
The aroma of freshly baked shortbread will fill your kitchen as it transforms into golden perfection. Once baked, allow the shortbread to cool before removing them from the tins. Indulge in the heavenly taste of these delightful treats, which pair perfectly with a cup of tea or coffee.
