  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C (130°C fan forced). Line two large baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Place the butter and icing sugar into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a beater attachment, beat until pale and creamy. Sift the flour and cornflour together, then stir into the creamed butter mixture.
  3. Turn out the dough onto a clean surface and knead to form a smooth ball. Roll out the dough between two pieces of baking paper to about 7-10mm thick. Use cookie cutters to cut the dough into desired shapes. Place the shortbread shapes onto the baking trays and sprinkle with the demerara sugar, if desired.
  4. Bake the shortbread for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are just beginning to turn golden. Allow to cool on the trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • For extra impressive-looking shortbread, use coloured icing to pipe patterns onto the cookies.
  • Roll the dough into a log and cut 5mm slices from the log. Place the slices on baking trays and bake as directed.
