3 Ingredient Buttery Shortbread
  1. Preheat oven to 160°C (fan-forced) and line 2 baking trays with baking paper
  2. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl of an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add sifted flour and mix on low until combined
  3. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead gently until smooth. Shape into a disc and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until firm
  4. Divide the dough into two. Rewrap one half and set aside. Roll out to 5mm thick and use lightly floured cookie cutters to cut out 36 shortbreads, re-rolling dough as necessary. Using a small round cutter, cut out centres from half of the shortbreads. Place onto prepared trays. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until light golden, swapping trays halfway. Set aside on trays to cool completely
Passionfruit Butter
  1. Combine eggs, sugar, passionfruit and lemon juice in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until sugar has dissolved
  2. Gradually add the butter, one or two cubes at a time, whisking continuously
  3. Cook, whisking, for a further 5 minutes or until mixture has thickened and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat. Cover the curd surface with plastic wrap to prevent it from forming a skin. Allow to cool to room temperature then refrigerate until cold
  4. Sandwich biscuits together with passionfruit butter and dust with icing sugar just before serving
