Method

+/- 20 min
 
Preheat the oven to 180 ºC and spray a few baking sheets with non-stick spray or butter lightly. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Sift the cake flour and baking powder together and add to the butter mixture along with the remaining shortbread ingredients. Mix well and press the mixture into the prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes until the shortbread is a pale straw colour. Meanwhile prepare the icing: Dissolve the coffee powder in 15 ml (1 T) hot water and add half to the icing sugar along with the butter. Mix, adding small quantities of hot water at a time until a spreadable paste is formed. Cool the baked shortbread for 5 minutes before spreading with the icing. Leave for another 5 minutes before cutting into squares. Allow to cool completely in baking sheets. Store in an airtight container. Makes 35 squares.
