SHORT BREAD COOKIES


You will need


  • Standard flour - 225 grams

  • Castor sugar - 75 grams

  • Butter - 150 grams (at room temperature)

  • Vanilla paste

  • Rainbow sprinkles (optional)


Let's get baking!


Step 1: Pre- heat oven to 160 degrees.


Step 2: Combine flour, sugar and a dash of vanilla paste into a large mixing bowl.


Step 3: Mix together on medium speed with paddle attachment until a smooth dough has formed. If you are adding sprinkles, now's a good time to throw them in to the mix. If you don't have a paddle attachment for your mixer, you can use a wooden spoon - might be a bit of a work out!


Step 4: Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to approximately 5-10 mm thick and cut with desired cutters or dough cutter. Or, get creative and cut your own shapes!


Step 5: Place onto a well greased or lined baking tray and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until your cookies turn a light caramel colour.


Step 6: Leave to cool completely.


Step 7: Once cooled, used your desired icing colours and get decorating! Store in an air tight container.


Any left over or spare dough can be re-rolled and used again and raw dough can be kept in plastic in the fridge for 2 weeks.
