Mum's Shortbreads

Another one of my mums very simple and easy to make shortbreads. She always added either cherries or walnuts on the top of them before cooking and they were always to be found in the cookie barrel on top of her refrigerator. When my children were little, whenever we visited mum's home, they would stand in front of the fridge and point up to the bikky barrel for one of her shortbreads.


350 grams plain flour
125 grams icing sugar
125 grams custard powder
350 grams butter

Cream butter and sugar and then add the flour and custard powder that has been sifted together. Make into small balls and place on greased cold oven slide. Press down with a for and add either a half glazed cherry or half a walnut on top. Bake in a moderate oven until a pale brown colour. Cool on rack and enjoy.
