Arnott's Scotch Fingers Inspired Recipe
- 170 gm salted butter, softened
- 90 gm (2/3 cup) soft icing sugar
- 165 gm (1 cup) plain flour
- 10 gm (1½) tsp baking powder
- Preheat oven to 160°C. Grease a 30cm x 20cm rectangular slice pan and line base and sides with baking paper, extending paper 2cm above edge of pan.
- Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and icing sugar for 2 mins or until pale and creamy. Sift the flour and baking powder over the butter mixture and mix on low speed or with your hands until combined.
- Press mixture into slice pan and smooth over with a pallet knife. Bake for 25 minutes. (At this stage you can also imprint SCOTCH, your name or even your kid's names for a fun personal touch!)
- Remove from oven and using a small sharp knife immediately slice into rectangular pieces 5cm crossways x 7.5cm lengthways. Then run the knife gently ½ way into the shortbread pieces, not touching the bottom, to make the finger indent. Let the biscuit cool in the pan for 10-15 min before moving to a cooling rack.
- Trim edges, if desired, before serving. Enjoy!
