Happy Mother's Day!

Wishing lots of love... all the wonderful mums out there.

Vanilla Sugar Cookies

¾ cup caster sugar
¾ cup butter (about 170g), softened
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon cream of tartar

1. In a medium mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar till light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mix well.
2. Mix together dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir in butter+egg mixture until ingredients are well blended. Shape dough into a ball with your hands, cover and refrigerate for about 40 minutes, or until dough is workable.
3. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line baking trays with baking sheets.
4. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and roll thinly, about ¼ inch. Cut into desired shapes. Bake around 10 minutes, or until lightly golden.

Happy Mother's Day Mummy!
