- 125 grams Butter
- 200 grams sugar, (raw, caster or white)
- 300 grams plain flour
- 1 egg
- half vanilla bean, or a dash of vanilla essence
- 1 pinch salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- sugar, (raw caster or white)
- coloured cachous
*If usuing raw sugar, blitz for 5 secs on sp 9 first
Add butter and sugar to TM bowl, cream 20 secs sp 4.
Scrape vanilla seeds from vanilla pod into the bowl (if using)
and add rest of ingredients, bring together sp 6 10 seconds, scrape down sides and mix sp 6 another 10 seconds.
Turn to closed lid and mix on wheat setting for 20 seconds - mixture should resemble crumbs but won't be brought together entirely.
Tip out onto Thermomat (or a floured board) and gently bring together into a ball. Put into a zip lock bag or wrap in cling wrap and rest in the fridge for minimum of 1 hour.
Take dough from fridge and roll out onto a floured board with a rolling pin to apprimtely 5 ml thickness. Cut shapes and place onto a cookie tray lined with baking paper ready to bake. Cookies can be decorated with a scattering of sugar or coloured cachou balls or left plain.
I use a small star cutter and get approximatey 80 cookies out of a batch. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, 180 degrees fan bake and cool on wire rack.
Note: If you you use a larger cookie cutter, your cooking time may vary and need to be adjusted accordingly. The star cutter I use is 5cms wide.
As Christmas and holidays approach us, this is a great recipe for kids, as it rolls out well and is great for cookie cutters. The dough is very forgiving and is easily able to be brought together again numerous times after it has been used to cut out the first lot of shapes
Accessories you need
If you like a crunchier biscuit, cook until the sides are just starting to turn golden.
Dough can be made the day before and kept in the fridge. It also freezes well.
