Shortbread in a Food Processor

Shortbread hearts
I broke my food processor recently, entirely my own fault, but the moto of the story is do not try and stuff as many smoked mackerel fillets in there as physically possible - just wont do it any good! 

I couldn't be without a processor so I ordered one straight away. It arrived on my doorstep the next day and I decided to christen it with some really simple shortbread cookies. I've never really used processors for anything other than chopping before, but I'm determined to make full use of this one...and try my hardest not to lose any of the attachments.
