Cinnamon shortbread cookies

This recipe is perfect for beginners and a great way to introduce children to the basics of baking.
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
  • Chilling Time: 30 minutes
  • Baking Time: 15-20 minutes
  • 250g plain flour
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 200g unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar (for sprinkling)

Prepare the Dough:

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Gradually sift in the plain flour and ground cinnamon, mixing until the dough comes together. It might look crumbly at first, but keep mixing until it forms a smooth dough.

Chill the Dough:

  • Form the dough into a disk, wrap it in cling film, and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. This step is important for the dough to firm up and be easier to roll out.

Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 160°C (140°C fan/gas mark 3).

Roll Out and Cut:

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the chilled dough to about 1cm thickness.
  • Use cookie cutters to cut out desired shapes and place them on a baking tray lined with baking parchment.

Add the Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

  • Mix the granulated sugar with a pinch of ground cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the cookies before baking.

Bake:

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
  • Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
