Vanilla Shortbread

This is unashamedly Nigella’s recipe from Forever Summer. It’s the best I have ever made. MIL asked where it was from and nearly fell of her chair when I said I had made it, it was so good. Make it. You won’t be disappointed.

For about 24 squares you need:
100g icing sugar
100g cornflour
200g plain flour
1 tsp vanilla paste
2 tbsp vanilla sugar
200g very soft butter

Blitz the icing sugar and flours together in a food processor till combined. Then add the butter and vanilla paste. Combine into a dough and then press into a lined swiss roll tin. Score into squares and then prick the tops. Bake at 160 degrees for about 25 mins till light brown. Leave to cool then sprinkle with vanilla sugar and break into the squares you scored earlier. Try not eat it all yourself on the day you make it…
