350g gluten-free flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
200g castor/superfine sugar
170 butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla essence/extract
2 eggs

  3. Beat in eggs, one at a time, into the sugar/butter mixture until smooth.
  4. Mix butter mixture into flour mixture and form into a ball.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for an hour (or more if your room temp is high).
  6. Preheat oven to 165c.
  7. Roll onto floured surface to approx 5-7mm thick and cut out using whichever shapes you like.
  8. Arrange on baking sheet. They won't expand very much, perhaps leave 1cm between them.
  9. Cook for 10 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Even if they feel soft, they will still harden once they cool.
  10. Leave to cool on tray for 2 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.
