  • 50 g (3.5 tablespoons) Butter (cold ,cut into pieces)
  • 35 g (1.5 tablespoons) Brown sugar (sifted)
  • 1.5 tablespoons Milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • A dash of salt
  • Sugar to sprinkle on top
  1. Put the flour, salt and brown sugar in a bowl of the food processor and pulse until just mixed.
  2. Add the butter and pulse until the butter is finely mixed in. The mixture should resemble breadcrumbs.
  3. Pour vanilla and milk into the bowl and pulse several times.
  4. Using lightly floured hands, shape the dough into a square. Dust lightly with flour and wrap with plastic wrap. Chill for at least 2 hours.
  5. Heat the oven to 170°C (340°F). Roll the dough to a 3-4 mm thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters.
  6. Carefully place on cookie sheets. Sprinkle evenly with sugar.
