Dreamlike Shortbread Biscuits

As-Salamu Alaikum sisters, greetings dear reader,
The recipe I followed for this delicious dreamlike shortbread was taken from Lorraine Pascales baking made 'easy' series and let me tell you it is just that, easy.

3 standard ingredients of shortbread are butter, sugar and flour however, the addition of rice flour I feel gives shortbread a better sandy texture. If you haven't got rice flour to hand then i've read fine semolina can be used instead.

Some recipes out there call for corn flour although I'm not sure if this can be used as a direct rice flour substitute it does seem more plausible to me than fine semolina, as corn flour and rice flour have a more similar texture. 
You can't go wrong with Lorraines simple instructions for making and decorating,  get a fork and your pinchy fingers ready! Rich, crumbly and melt in your mouth goodness, Lorraine gives suggestions on how to give your shortbread a little flavour oomph with citrus zest or stem ginger! For full recipe click here
P.S. I forgot to sprinkle caster sugar over the shortbread once it had baked, but don't worry if you make that mistake / choice it is definitely sweet enough without it
P.P.S. Oh i almost forgot shortbread goes well with a nice cup of tea / coffee and don't mind any crumbs etc on the floor (yes that is my carpet lol) I had an excuse for not vacuuming that morning day... you guessed it I'd been baking shortbread......!
 Now I'm thinking of making..... millionaires shortbread, inshaAllah

Looks lovely! I think we have semolina flour so might try it with that in'shaa'Allah

These look so delicious and buttery mashAllah! I love that they're not just a bunch of crumbs (that always happens to me when I make shortbread! Lol!)

Thank you sister and I do hope your shortbread goes well with the use of semolina flour inshaAllah.

Thank you and Yes they were buttery and very crummy when they were still warm you guessed it I couldnt resist 1 from the oven. Once they cooled they firmed up a wee bit.
you should try the recipe I linked to inshaAllah

It gave it some texture but it was still nice.

Thank you for the feedback sister

Sorry if the substitute I suggested for rice flour didn't give you the desired results if you ever make it again and you haven't any rice flour try using just all purpose white flour.

No, I actually liked it! If I make it again might try it with the AP flour in'shaa'Allah. I think I might need to invest in a scale so I can follow British/UK recipes (and also those macarons recipes!) more accurately as well

Alhamdulillah im happy you enjoyed the shortbread sister and yes it is worth buying weighing scales as you get better results in baking by measuring weight rather than volume plus you can use them when cooking for portion sizing dry pasta, rice etc.

These look really good!! I'm a big fan of shortbread but never tried one myself inshAllah I will try this recipe soon!!
