Jannah broke her toy pot handle a few weeks back and asked me to fix it and I finally fixed it yesterday hehehehez. It's not that I didn't have the super glue supply at home, I do. It's just that everytime I wanted to do it I got distracted LOLzz....another excuse. Why is there a need for me to blog abt this?? Just bcos I am going to share a tip here on how to remove super glue if you got it stuck to any part of your skin.
The story goes, while I was trying to glue the pot handle to the pot. I must have squeezed the super glue tube extra hard thus excess glue must have flowed off the tube without me realising it. The next second, my finger was stuck to the glue tube. I tried as I might to peel it off but if i tried any harder the skin might just peeled off. Suddenly, an idea bulb popped in my head *ting*!! I was thinking, if I were to use nail polish remover on my finger, I might be able to remove my finger from the tube. It works.....alhamdullilah. I had to keep on pouring the solution on my stuck finger and remove the skin bit by bit. Not even the glue residue was left on my finger after that. Nope the nail polish doesn't belong to me at all. Belongs to.....the princess wanabe girl of course hehehez.
Anyway, hb been bugging me for awhile now for shortbread cos he's been craving for them. This is my 2nd batch that I made this week. The first batch was gone in 60 seconds. These shorties must have really satisfied hb's craving lolzzzz......poor hb :D Jannah luvs them too and keeps on asking for more and at the same time asked if I had photoed them. They were gone before I can save them for photos hehehez. This time round, I doubled the recipe. Really love the recipe, not only it only requires 4 ingredients (5 for me bcos I added vanilla essence).....it definitely taste like the Walker's brand shortbread just like how Amber described it on her blog.
Really Perfect ShortbreadSource : Amber @ Bluebonnetsandbrownies
Note : Amber used a shortbread mold for this recipe. Refer to above link on how to bake shortbread in a mold.
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1/3 c. powdered (icing) sugar
1/4 tsp. fine grain (table) salt
3/4 c. butter (1 1/2 sticks) (I used anchor)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence (I added)
Using a food processor, combine flour, sugar, and salt. Pulse the ingrdedients once or twice just to thoroughly combine them.
Chop butter into large chunks and distribute evenly around the food processor bowl.
Replace the lid and process for 30-90 seconds, until the dough resembles fine crumbs.
Roll dough into a ball and chill it in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 160 deg C.
Take dough out of the fridge and roll it and cut into 1inch(w) x 3 inches (l), prick with a fork and bake it on a lined tray for abt 15-20 mins or until golden brown.
