125g butter (softened)

55g caster sugar

180g plain flour


Pre-heat the oven to 190c.

Beat the butter and sugar together until it is smooth.

Slowly stir in the flour and mix well.

Turn mixture out onto a clean worksurface (sprinkled with flour to avoid sticking) and roll out until it is 1 cm thick.

Cut out desired shapes (rounds or fingers) and place on a baking tray with parchment paper (grease-proof) and softly poke with a fork to make pattern and then place in fridge for 20 mins.

Sprinkle with a few sugar grains over each one then bake in oven for 15 mins or until pale golden brown.  Cool on a wire rack.
