Shortbread cookies

There are days you just sit and start craving shortbread cookies; such cravings hits differently whenever they come. You can not wait to lay hands on them and start to devour as usual.

If you live in Nigeria and you are a staunch lover of this snack, you’ll already know their prices could make one who’s living on a budget pass out (literally), as they are quite expensive. I thought why waste money buying them every time you feel like enjoying your favorite cookies when you could just make them yourself, at home.

This milky and buttery shortbread recipe is heavenly. You know that milky feeling you get from biting in? You’d think it’s made of so much milk, but hey, the recipe doesn’t even include milk. Until I did my research, I used to think same way too. The milky taste comes from the butter. I know you are surprised, I was surprised myself when I first learned that too. Smile.

I decided to share my own version of this Yummy cookie recipe with everyone who loves shortbread like myself. The twist in this recipe makes it even more yummy.


Plain flour (150 grams) 

Butter  not margarine (100 grams) 

Icing sugar (50 grams) 

Powdered milk (1/2 cup or more depending on how rich you want it to be) 


Step 1: In a neat bowl or mixer, mix the butter and icing sugar together until creamy. Do not add too much icing sugar: I’ll advice you use a measuring cup to get the right quantity.

Step 2: Sieve the plain flour + powdered milk into the bowl and mix thoroughly until well incorporated.

Step 3: Form a ball with the dough and leave to rest in the fridge or in a cool place for 30mins.

Step 4: Preheat the oven at 170C/325F for about 5mins 

Step 5: Then place the dough on a table and roll it out to 3/4 inch thick width, then cut into 2cm by 10cm shortbread fingers or shape and gently transfer unto a baking tray.

Step 6: Using a toothpick or fork, make indents on the shortbread fingers.

Step 7: And finally, place the tray into the preheated oven and bake at 170C/325F for 10 to 12mins or until firm, but not brown.

Note: more milk makes it richer.
