Ingredients

  • 6 cups Plain Flour, Sifted
  • 1 cup Caster Sugar
  • 500 grams Butter


Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.
  2. Add the butter and caster sugar to a mix master or similar and mix on high until creamed and light and fluffy.
  3. Slowly add the plain flour, a little at a time to the mix.  The mixture should resemble a thick dough.
  4. Place the dough on a floured board and roll out to approximately 4mm thick.  Use cookie cutters to cut out any shapes you desire.
  5. Transfer the cookies to a cookie tray lined with baking paper.
  6. Cook for 10 - 12 minutes.  Remove from the tray and place the cookies on a rack to cool.

Notes

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • The dough can be frozen for up to two months.  Once mixed, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze (with the use-by date).
