    I have a super easy recipe - got it from a kids baking book.

    Plain shortbread biscuits (approx 24).

    150g plain flour
    50g caster sugar
    100g butter

    1. Put it all in a bowl & rub into butter.
    2. Once crumbly, squeeze together to form dough
    3. Roll out & use cookie cutters or make little balls & squash with fork on baking tray.
    4. Bake for 15-20 mins at 170° C.
    5. Cool & Eat!

    If you want, add 50g of choc chips or sultanas or nuts at step 2. Or 25g cocoa for chocolate bikkies.

    Can decorate with icing etc too if you want when cool.

    AFAIK it's a block of butter. 500g, the amount that it's sold in when wrapped up in paper/foil.

    Stick of butter is an American term. Their 1 pound blocks of butter come split and wrapped into quarters or "sticks". 1 stick is a quarter of a pound. Google tells me it is 113 grams, but I usually substitute one quarter of a 500 gram block or 125grams.

    I postponed the biscuit making after Izzy's Dragon suggested decorating them. Now I'm waiting for the weekend so we can go all out with icing and sprinkles and little jelly bean faces and what have you.
