Shortbread was simpler than i thought it would be.  They were slightly overdone, but that wasn't my fault - i had left tara to take them out of the oven while i ran an errand for her!  I was going to have them with nigella's lemon cream recipe, but somehow we had run out of double cream even though its all i seem to buy these days.  But they were lovely on their own.

- Cream 100g soft butter and 50g icing sugar in a food processor, then add 100g flour, 50g cornflour and a pinch of salt, and process again.
- Remove and mould into a cylinder shape.
- Cover with clingfilm and put in the fridge for 20 mins.
- When firm, slice into 1/2 cm discs and cook in the oven on a baking tray for 20-30 mins, removing when the top is dry.
