Recipe

  • 200g unsalted butter at room temperature, and
  • a pinch of salt

or

  • 200g salted butter at room temperature
  • 280g caster sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 400g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Makes about 20

Method

Preheat oven to 170 °C (325 °F) Gasmark 3

Put the butter, sugar and vanilla extract in a freestanding electric mixer with a paddle attachment (or use a handheld electric whisk) and cream until light and fluffy. Add the egg and mix well, scraping any unmixed ingredients from the side of the bowl with a rubber spatula.

Add the flour,(salt) and cream of tartar and mix well, but don't overmix. The dough should be light, soft and easy to handle.

Lightly dust the work surface with flour and roll out the dough with a rolling pin. Cut out shapes with your Hackspace cookie cutter. Arrange the cookies on the prepared baking trays and bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes.

Check them regularly to make sure they are not burning. The cookies should be very light golden on the outer edges and paler in the centre. When you are happy that they are cooked through, remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly on the trays before turning out onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
