Serves: 8
  • Ingredients
  • 125g butter (room temperature)
  • 55g caster sugar, plus extra to finish
  • 180g plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Instructions
  2. Preheat the oven to 190C (170C Fan)
  3. Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla essence together with a wooden spoon until smooth.
  4. Stir in the flour and mix together to bring all the ingredients together. Try not to overwork. Turn on to a lightly floured work surface and gently roll out to about 1 cm thick.
  5. Cut out with a cookie cutter and place onto a baking tray. Roll together any spare dough and repeat.
  6. Sprinkle with caster sugar and place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to chill the dough. This will help prevent spreading.
  7. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until pale golden-brown.
  8. Let cool for a couple of minutes on the baking tray. Then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling.
Makes: 8 (7 cm) cookies
