Shortbread biscuits - dairy, gluten, wheat, soya and egg free

This is fantastic, quick, easy and tasty recipe, which can keep the kids happy for a good hour after as they decorate the biscuits with icing etc afterwards! Alternatively, they can cut them out with their (washed!) favourite play-doh cutters or you can make Pudsey Bear Biscuits for Children In Need which everyone can eat!

Ingredients

2 oz caster sugar
4 oz Pure Margarine
6 oz Dove's Farm plain flour
1 teaspoon Xantham Gum

Method

Cream together sugar and margarine, gradually mix in the flour to make a dough. You may need to add more flour, sometimes Pure requires additional flour, it is the consistency which is important so don't worry about adding more. If you are not gluten/wheat free then use normal plain flour.

The dough should be roll-able. Roll approx half cm thick and cut into desired shapes.
Bake for 7-10 mins at 180 C or until just turning golden. They harden up after removing from the oven, don't leave them in too long.

Decorate as desired!
