Greek Shortbread with Lemon Curd

250g butter, room temperature and cubed
115g cornflour
340g flour
115g icing sugar, sifted
1 x batch Lemon Curd from this blog

Add the butter, cornflour, flour and icing sugar to the bowl of a food processor and process until the ingredients almost come together in a ball. The mixture is very dry and needs to be scraped down every now and then between processing. Keep going until you can squeeze clumps together between your fingers.
Wrap the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 180℃ and spray a miniature muffin tin with cooking spray.
Break pieces of the dough off and press it very tightly into the muffin holes so that it fills it almost to the top.
Bake the shortbread for 15 minutes.
Remove the baking tin from the oven and immediately make indents on the surface of each shortbread by pushing down firmly on it with the back of a 15ml measuring spoon.
Return the tin to the oven and bake for a further 5 minutes.
Remove and cool the shortbread in the muffin tins.
Spoon a teaspoonful of lemon curd into each hollow to serve.
