Wellington is an amazing city, but very fickle when it comes to the weather. Yesterday was a day when a custard pudding is a given and shortbread seemed like a good match. It sure was and it kept Mr Muffin happy, incidentally he hates butter but loves shortbread.

Grease 20cm cake tin (use a fluted tin if you have one)

Oven 160 (dough needs time in fridge before cooking)

170 grms softened butter

75 grams icing sugar

1 tbs lemon zest

1 tsp vanilla extract

210 grams all purpose flour

1 tbs corn flour/starch

1/2 tsp salt (or 1 if used unsalted butter)

Cream butter, icing sugar, lemon zest and vanilla extract .

Pulse in flour until it forms a ball and mix on low for 1 minute

Roll into a circle and press into cake tin – I let the mix travel up the side and pressed into a pattern with a fork.

Chill for at least 20 mins fridge

Bake until light brown and leave to cool in the tin.
