Recipe's preparation

    Preheat Oven to 200 degrees

    Mill Sugar Speed 9 for 12 seconds.  Re-do if still grainy.



    Insert Butterfly and softened butter, and whisk speed 4 for 30 seconds.  Scrape sides and whisk a further 10 seconds speed 4.  Remove butterfly.


    In a small bowl using a fork, whisk egg with essence (can substitute with coconut, almond, peppermint etc for a different flavour).  Add this to your butter/sugar mix in bowl.


    Combine by mixing on Speed 5 for 10-15 seconds 


    Add plain flour, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt.  Mix Speed 5 until well combined.  You may need to scrape sides once.  The dough should give a little when touched but not sticking to fingers.  Add a little more flour if sticky/too wet.


    Turn dough onto floured baking paper and let rest for 5-10 minutes (this lets it harden a little more)

    (even better if you have time, put dough into fridge until chilled)


    Roll out dough to 5mm thickness and cut out your shapes


    Very carefully transfer cutouts to a lined baking tray, once filled place tray in freezer for 5-10mins (reduces cookies spreading)


    Bake for 7-10minutes.....watching carefully so they dont brown.  they will be soft but will harden up on cooling


    Ice with royal icing tmrc_emoticons.)tmrc_emoticons.-)Smile


when rolling dough and doing cutouts the dough can be delicate, try using little pieces of baking paper to transfer then turn over onto tray

I put my tray of cookies into the freezer for a while before baking to prevent spreading

    Great recipe! Very little spread once cooked! I did add a little more flour at the end and gave it a little knead myself and wrapped it in clingwrap for the fridge. Gave me a nice flat cookie to ice. Thanks for the recipe!

    Super easy recipe, so yummy!!!  Thank you tmrc_emoticons.)  I did add raw macadamias at the same time as the sugar and blitzed them for the same amount of time, just to add a nice nutty flavour, omitting the later vanilla essence.
