  • 250 g softened butter
  • 125 g caster sugar
  • 25 g rice flour
  • 5 drops of vanilla essence
  • 375 g plain flour


  • Preheat oven to 190 degrees.
  • Beat together the butter, sugar and rice flour until they turn white. Add a few drops of vanilla essence and continue to beat.
  • Gradually add the flour to the mixture, whilst continuing to mix on a low speed until a paste forms.
  • Turn mixture onto a cool bench dusted with flour and work until a smooth ball forms. I split my ball into two and place one in the fridge, covered in glad wrap.
  • Roll the other ball until apron 1cm thick and use cookie cutter to make desired shapes.
  • Bake in oven for approx 12 minutes until edges start to turn a golden brown.
