These biscuits are so yummy and buttery! They're also really easy to make, and like in the picture, they can be decorated, so they're great to make with kids.

So simple and yummy! Great for gifts!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes in the fridge, and 20 minutes in the oven
Makes: about 30 biscuits

125g butter, at room temperature
30g icing sugar, sifted
125g plain flour
25g cornflour
A few tablespoons custard powder (optional)

Beat the butter and icing sugar with electric beaters for 2 minutes, or until pale.

Turn off the beaters and sift the flour, cornflour and custard powder into the butter mixture. Beat on a low speed until just combined.

Flour hands and bring the dough together. Then shape into a flat ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 45 minutes or until firm.

Heat oven to 160C and line 1 or 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.

Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to whatever thickness you want your biscuits to be.

Using cookie cutters, cut out shapes and place on trays. With the leftover dough, combine it again with your hands and roll it out again, then cut and place on trays.

Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until they look nicely golden and cooked through.

Take the biscuits out of the oven and set aside to cool on a wire rack until room temperature.

Decorate with icing if desired.
