    Delia's Semolina Shortbreads

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 75 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 25 minutes 60 minutes 25 minutes

    Makes: 12 slices

    Ingredients

    175g plain flour
    75g caster sugar
    175g block butter, at room temperature
    75g fine semolina
    A little extra caster sugar

    Pre-heat the oven to 150°C, gas mark 2

    Equipment: One 20cm round loose-based sponge tin, lightly greased and base lined

    Method

    Place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and rub together until crumbly. Bring together to a dough, using your hands. 

    Now transfer the dough to the prepared tin and press it out evenly, smoothing it out with the back of a tablespoon. Then prick it all over with a fork and, using the prongs of the fork, press quite firmly round the edges to make a patterned border. 

    Bake the shortbread near the centre of the oven for 1 to 1¼ hours until it is pale gold. Then allow the shortbread to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before cutting it into 12 wedges. 

    Remove them to a wire rack to get completely cold, then sprinkle with sugar before storing in an airtight tin

     

    Note: If you would like to make this recipe gluten free, substitute both the plain flour and the semolina with gluten free flour.
