  • 115g Caster Sugar
  • 210g Softened Butter

For The Decoration:

  • 150g Icing Sugar

  1. First, put your sugar and butter into a bowl and mix until they are both combined together well.

  2. Next, stir in your flour until everything is mixed together.

  3. Your mixture should have turned into dough. Cut them out into shapes. (I did mine summer themed as it's summer time!)

  4. Bake your cookies for 5 to 6 minutes, but keep an eye on them as when they go golden brown they're ready.

  5. Decorate your cookies to make them look great.

  6. Enjoy your cookies!

I absolutely love this recipe. I stumbled upon it a few years ago now and fell in love. It's is an amazing recipe. It is so adaptable. I have made vegan cookies and gluten free cookies with this recipe. Just by changing the type of flour, butter and sugar I use to vegan and gluten free versions. I have also added chocolate chips, flavours like orange and cinnamon ect. As well as using whatever flour, sugar and butter i have in my fridge/cupboards. You can literally do anything you like to this basic recipe and the results are always amazing!
