Get a head start on your Chrissie presents by making these delicate sweet stars.
250g butter, at room temperature
125g (3/4 cup) icing sugar mixture
2 tsp vanilla extract
300g (2 cups) plain flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
60g (1/4 cup) raw sugar
Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Use an electric beater to beat together the butter, icing sugar and vanilla in a bowl until pale and creamy.
Stir in the flour and cinnamon until the dough comes together. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Shape into a disc and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes to rest.
Roll out the dough between 2 sheets of non-stick baking paper until 5mm thick. Use a 5cm-diameter star-shaped pastry cutter to cut 65 stars from the dough. Place on lined trays. Place trays in the freezer for 15 minutes to chill.
Sprinkle biscuits with sugar and bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Set aside on the trays for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
Prep: 20 mins (+ 15 mins resting, 15 mins chilling & 5 mins standing time)
These biscuits can be stored in an airtight container for up to a month.
