Short bread biscuits

I made shortbread biscuits last night, and they were so good we've already eaten them all!

125g/4oz butter
55g/2oz caster sugar
180g/6oz plain flour

1) Beat the sugar and butter together until pale.
2) Stir in the flour to get a smooth paste (I had to add a little water to get it to stick together well)
3)Turn onto a floured surface and gently roll out until 1cm thick.
4) Cut into rounds using a biscuit cutter. Put on the baking tray and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
5) Bake for 15-20 minutes (I found that 10 minutes was ok) in an oven preheated to 190'C/375'F/Gas mark 5 until golden brown. Leave to cool.

We ended up with about 24 biscuits. The dough was really nice to work with :) and the biscuits had a lovely crumbly texture. Here's how they turned out:
