  4. Eventually it will make a biscuit dough - work until it all sticks together (not crumbly)
  5. Use 7" loose bottom cake tin
  6. Dust tin with flour
  7. Flatten shortbread mix - put in tin and push down so it fills the bottom
  8. Take it off the tin base and put it onto a lightly greased baking sheet
  9. Crimp the edges using your fingers Prick all over with a fork
  10. Cook in a very low oven Gas 1-2 for 1 hour or so
  11. Check you don't over cook it - but it needs long enough to dry out
  12. Once out of the oven cool on a cooling rack and sprinkle all over with caster sugar
You can also roll the dough out and use cutters-perfect for Christmas Trees! These will need less cooking
