Master baker Roger Pizey gives tips for the perfect shortbread: ‘Make sure your butter is really soft, as this is the only thing that binds together the dry ingredients. You want a pale coloured finish, so don’t let the shortbreads get too golden. Lastly, cool the shortbreads completely on the baking sheet before handling, otherwise they may crumble.’
- unsalted butter 275g, softened
