Is Midsummer Day
Is the Longest Day
Fathers Day
My 35th Wedding Anniversary

To celebrate I made some shortbread

Easy recipe to make, I make in ounces, because that is the way I was taught to remember it and make it, and besides it really doesn't sound right in grams!

2, 4, 6 Shortbread

2 ozs Sugar  (50grms)
4 ozs Butter  (110gms)
6 ozs Flour  (170grms)

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and rub together with finger tips, work well and as the butter melts the ingredients all gather together and the bowl becomes clean.
Place onto a floured surface and roll out about 1/4" thick and using a biscuit cutter cut out shapes and place onto greased baking sheet.  Keep doing this until all the mixture has been used up.
Prick the shapes with a fork and cook on 180 degrees, Gas 4 for about 15 minutes.  
When cooked take out of the oven, sprinkle with sugar and leave on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes to cool a little.


  1. Yummy! Happy Wedding Anniversary! Mine was on the 18th June. It is the longest day today but Midsummer Day is on the 24th (so my diary informs me!) That is when the nights start drawing in again!!! x

  2. Same way I learn't, it's a good balance.

  3. Snap, I'd rather remember the easy ratio of the ounce version. Happy Wedding Anniversary to you both.

  4. Happy Anniversary, hope you've had a lovely day :)

  5. Happy Anniversary wishes to you both.

  6. Belatedly, Happy Anniversary!
