Macphie Shortbread Mix is a simple to use, add butter only shortbread mix which produces a deliciously rich, buttery, melt-in-the-mouth shortbread.


  • Weigh desired quantity of Macphie Shortbread Mix into a mixer bowl fitted with a beater.

  • Add butter brought to room temperature, so that it is softened and more manageable. (Please note: If the butter has not beentempered, cream it in the mixer for 2-3 minutes to soften it before adding the mix.)

  • Mix on a low speed until a stiff dough is formed (the dough should pull away slightly from the sides of the bowl; as a guide: for 5kg of Macphie Shortbread Mix in 40 quart Hobart this will take around 10-15 minutes to form the dough).

  • Over-mixing leads to a softening of the dough, and this may make the dough more difficult to handle.

  • Pin out and shape as required. 

  • Bake at 150°C (300°F) until lightly golden brown

  • Baking time is dependent on the depth of shortbread:- 

    40-45 minutes for petticoat tails 10mm deep.

    60-70 minutes for fingers 15mm deep.

    20-25 minutes for doubleshortbread 5mm deep.
