Really good recipe, I’ve never made shortbread squashed in a tray before and I thought it might break to bits when I cut it up but it didn’t. I actually used soft brown sugar because I had no caster and put a sprinkle of poppy seeds pressed in on top before cooking. I’ve already eaten 4 pieces and it’s not fully cooled yet! Yum!

Delicious shortbread! Make sure the oven really is up to temperature first (mine only goes up to 180°F on pre-heat) and make sure to press it into the tin enough.
