Cinnamon Shortbread ~Christmas

Christmas is just round the corner and freezing weather has really caught on here in UK...I love to use quite a lot of spices this time of the year...and I think cinnamon is the perfect spice during the winter season....I love the fragrant of the cinnamon and it's sweet and warm taste especially when in all baking recipes...I made this delectable melt in mouth shortbread with ground cinnamon...


You will need :-



250 g Unsalted butter at room temprature
250 g Plain flour
125 g rice flour
pinch of salt
100 g Caster sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp icing sugar for dusting
1 tsp ground cinnamon for dusting



Method:-
In a bowl mix butter and sugar. Mix till it gets fluffy, now add both flour, cinnamon and salt. Rub the mixture is like fine crumbs and knead untill smooth. Then cover the dough with clingflim and place it in the fridge for half an hour. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4. Now roll out the dough untill 1/2 inch thicker. cut out the cookies with cookie cutter in what ever shape you fancy. I cut mine into STARS... Place the cookies ona baking sheet.Press the tines of a fork into each cookie to make designs. Bake them about 18-20 minutes. Cool on wire racks. Mix icing sugar and ground cinnamon and gently toss them to coat.

The greatest good you can do for another, is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.
