Main Ingredients

200 g butter, softened

250 g caster sugar

300 g plain flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tbsp vanilla sugar

1 egg 1 to top: egg, beaten + pearl sugar


1Preheat your oven to 180C/355F.

2Line baking sheets with baking paper and set aside.

3Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

4Add all of your remaining ingredients (see notes for extra additions) and mix until a soft dough forms.

5Divide your dough into 6 pieces and form into logs.

6Place your cookie dough logs onto your prepared baking tray, flatten them until they're about 1/2 cm thick.

7Brush your cookie dough with beaten egg and sprinkle over pearl sugar.

8Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden.

9Whilst your cookies are still warm, slice them into pieces and leave them to cool completely before removing them from the tray.

10Store in an airtight container.

Additional Notes

Here are some of our favourite variations: Chocolate - Add 4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder Two Toned - Divide dough in half and add 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder to one half. Shape dough portions (divide each half into 6 as per recipe) into logs and twist around each other before flattening into a log shape. Almond - Add 1-2 tsp almond extract and replace the sugar topping with thinly sliced almonds. Vanilla - Use the recipe as it is - not additions needed!
