  • 10 minutes


  • 250 g Lurpak butter, melted and cooled
  • ½ t vanilla extract
  • 55 g caster sugar
  • 55 g icing sugar
  • 55 g cornflour
  • 350 g flour, sifted

Cooking Instructions


Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Combine the butter, vanilla extract, sugar, cornflour in a bowl and cream. Add the flour – if the mixture is too crumbly, add 1–2 T melted butter to bring it together.

Roll out the dough between 2 pieces of baking paper and chill for 30 minutes. Cut out shapes and place on a baking tray, then bake for 8–10 minutes or until golden.

To decorate, combine a little icing sugar with a squeeze of lemon juice and a drop of food colouring. Drizzle over the cookies and sprinkle with soft-centred pearls, edible glitter and dried or fresh edible flowers.
