Note – initial recipe has been modified to add another 1/2 cup of flour due to recipe being too buttery.
- 250g butter
- 3/4 cup icing sugar
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 160 C.
Beat butter and sugar until pale and creamy. Mix in flour and salt and mix well.
Turn out onto a bench and lightly knead. Roll into logs approximately 4cm in diameter and cut in .5 cm slices.
Place on a cold tray and bake for 15-20 minutes until firm but not coloured.
Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.
