Christmas Shortbread


6 cups Plain Flour, Sifted

1 cup Caster Sugar

500 grams Butter


Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.

Ceam butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy.

Slowly add the plain flour, a little at a time to the mix.  The mixture should resemble a thick dough. Place the dough on a floured board and roll out to approximately 4mm thick. 

Use Christmas cookie cutters to cut out any shapes you desire. Transfer the cookies to a cookie tray lined with baking paper.

Cook for 10 - 12 minutes.  Remove from the tray and place the cookies on a rack to cool.
