Ingredients

  • 500g plain flour

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Method

  1. Preheat the oven
  2. Rub together the flour, icing sugar and butter to make breadcrumbs (you can use a food processor but for children hands are more fun!)
  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.
  9. You can adapt the recipe by adding chocolate chips or use wholemeal flour.
