  3. Add the milk and vanilla extract and mix with your hands until it sticks together
  4. If you have time chill for 30 minutes but my kids are usually too impatient so we use it straight away!
  5. Roll out to about 5mm thick on a floured surface.
  6. Use cutters of any shape.
  7. Bake on a baking tray for 12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack
  8. Decorate with icing or melted chocolate or leave plain-still delicious.
