Is a favourite in my family, particularly at Christmas time, so I just had to whip up a batch – it is the season after all! It is a simple recipe, to make it you will need:
250 grams of butter
1 cup icing sugar
1 ¼ cups corn flour
1 ¾ plain flour
Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Cream butter and icing sugar together until light and fluffy. Sift in corn flour and flour, mix in using a wooden spoon. Combined mixture should be kneaded well in the bowl.
Lightly flour a board or clean bench space and roll out mixture to about 0.5cm in thickness (mine are slightly thinner than this as I find they bake better like this when using different shapes).
Cut out using a cutter of your choice or cut into pieces. Place on a lined baking tray - at this point you can decorate with little cachous.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden but not brown.
I found this mixture made 24 full sized biscuits and 30 mini biscuits.
We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas!
