Ingredients

  • 130 g (1 cup) icing sugar
  • 340 g (3 sticks) butter
  • 375 g (3 cups) plain flour

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius (fan-forced). Line two large flat baking trays with baking paper and set aside. 
  • Place the icing sugar into the Thermomix bowl and mix on Speed 8, 10 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the butter and plain flour. 
  • Mix on Speed 6, 10-15 seconds and then on Interval/Knead function for 1 minute.
  • Gently knead the dough into a ball (but don't overwork it) and then roll out to 1/2-1 cm thick. Use cookie cutters to cut the dough shapes out. 
  • Place the shapes onto the prepared trays and bake for 12-15 minutes or until only just very lightly golden (do not overcook). 
  • Allow to cool on the trays for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
