  • 12oz Plain Flour
  • 8oz Butter
  • 4oz Caster Sugar
  • 1tbsp Cornflour


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 155 degrees celsius for fan oven. Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper/ silicone mat.

  2. Cream together butter and sugar.

  3. Remove one tbsp of flour and replace with one tbsp of cornflour.

  4. Add the flour to the butter and sugar and mix (by hand or machine) until resembling fine bread crumbs.

  5. Bind and knead the mixture behind until you have a ball of dough.

  6. Roll out the dough to 1cm thickness and cut to desired shape.

  7. Bake on the baking sheet for 15-20mins - keep an eye on it - it doesn't want to be golden brown! You want to catch it just before that.

  8. Poke some decorative holes in the top with a fork and leave to cool on a wire cooling rack.

  9. Sprinkle a little caster sugar on the top before serving.
