Shortbread Fingers

275g Plain flour
60g Sugar
Pinch of salt
175g chilled butter (cubed)
2 tsp Vanilla Essence

Do not use food process.

Work butter into flour, using fingertips, lightly & delicately. Once butter has almost gone, add sugar, salt & vanilla and combine all ingredients still using fingers. You will end up with a biscuit like mixture. You can wrap in Cling film and chill if you want to)

(The less flour you use and the less u handle it the better - more u work biscuits, tougher they get)
Roll out the dough on a floured surface to appx 5mm. With a little bit of flour on knife. Carefuly cut rolled out dough into fingers... gently score down each biscuit using a fork and sprinkle with icing sugar

Place fingers on baking sheet and cook at 150C for 8 minutes (do not let colour). Fingers are very delicate when warm - let cool on a wire rack
