Shortbread Fingers is a truly delicious treat! At home I often prepare them in large numbers and even hide some cos I know that both my children and husband will finish them off in minutes! Beware you might get addicted to these Shortbread Fingers too!!!

  Butter 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), firmly packed
  All purpose flour 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1 Tablespoon

1 Lightly grease a non metallic shallow container 23 x 13 x 5cm/9x 5x2 inch and sprinkle with flour, knocking out any surplus.
2 Combine the butter (straight from refrigerator) and sugar.
3 Gradually work in the flour and salt to form a pliable dough.
4 Press the dough into the prepared tin, using hands.
5 If possible, refrigerate for 20 minutes or freeze for 5 minutes. Prick well all over.
