Adapted the recipe from AWW cookbook, changed bits. This is a melt and mix shortbread, different for the above, which is creaming.

The Dough: 
IngredientAmountMeasurement
2 1/2 C plain flour, sifted
375.00
grams
1/3 C cornflour
50.00
grams
butter
250.00
grams
1/3 C icing sugar
66.00
grams
1/4 C castor sugar
50.00
grams
1/2 teasp vanilla
2.00
grams
Method: 

Melt butter. Sift icing sugar and cornflour, then add sugar. Add butter and vanilla. Beat until thick and creamy. Mix in flour. Press into 8 inch square tin. Bake in mod oven 30 mins.

Make royal icing....gosh I wing this all the time, so I don't have the proportions. Just start with around 2 C of sifted icing sugar. Add egg white until you reach a consistency which is not too stiff it can't flow. Get your sprinkles ready because you have to work fast before the icing dries. Spread over warm shortbread. Add sprinkles. I didn't have enough sprinkles to cover the biscuit fully..because making this was impromptu. Cut while warm and let cool completely before lifting out of tin.
