Delicious Shortbread
  1. Process all ingredients, except caster sugar together in a food processor until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  2. Press mixture together until it forms a dough. Divide dough in two and refrigerate.
  3. Roll out dough between 2 sheets of baking paper until 5mm thick.
  4. Using a star-shaped cutter, cut shapes from dough. Transfer to prepared trays. Sprinkle with caster sugar if desired.
  5. Bake at 160°C for approximately 30 minutes or until dry and firm but still pale. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with icing sugar. Serve.

I see in the preparation time there’s a 60 min refrigeration time but in the method it doesn’t say when to do it.
