  • 250 g plain flour
  • 30 g cornstarch (cornflour)
  • 210 g butter
  • 100 g icing sugar
  • tsp salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence


  • Brown sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 175°Celsius and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Sift plain flour and corn-starch into a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, cream butter, sugar and salt until light and creamy. Add in vanilla essence and beat until well incorporated.
  • Add in flour, in three batches and mix until all the flour has been well incorporated. Form the dough into a ball and rest it for about 30 minutes before shaping the cookies.
  • To shape the cookies, divide the dough into 3 sections for easy handling.
  • Knead each section lightly and form into a ball. Flatten the ball lightly with fingers and place it in between 2 sheets of parchment paper or plastic.
  • Roll the dough to about 4mm thick. Use a round cookie cutter to cut the cookies out.
  • Lift the cookies off the parchment paper by pushing them from beneath the parchment paper the dough is resting on and place them on the prepared baking tray.
  • Sprinkle ⅛ tsp of brown sugar on each cookie.
  • Bake cookies in the preheated oven for approximately 10 to 12 minutes until the cookies turn golden brown on the sides.
  • Remove tray from oven and let the cookies rest in the tray for 5 minutes before transferring onto a wire rack to cool completely. Store the cookies in an airtight container.
