Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180c/350f/Gas mark 4
  2. Cream your sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Don't persevere by hand if you have an electric whisk - it's much easier!
  3. Mix in the flour (sieve if you prefer) until you have a smooth dough, and turn out on to a floured work surface
  4. Roll out your dough to around 1cm thickness and cut into either slices or use a round cookie cutter for circular biscuits - prick the top of the dough with a fork for that traditional 'shortbread' look
  5. Transfer to a baking tray (either a good non-stick or a tray lined with baking paper) and bake for around 20 mins or until golden
  6. Dust with more caster sugar before leaving to cool
  7. Serve with a cup of tea
