    • 1 tbsp Vanilla bean paste

    Roll out the dough, between the two sheets to approximately 4mm thick.

    Cut out the cookies using your chosen cutter and place on a greased or lined baking sheet, chill again for a further 15 minutes or until they are completely hard again. The chilling stops the cookies from spreading and will help them keep their shape.

    Keep re-rolling the scraps and chilling again between two sheets of baking paper until you have used up all the dough.

    Bake in the oven for approximately 12 minutes until the cookies are golden brown on the edges. Baking times will vary depending on the size of cutter you are using, times here are based on a 2 1/2″ cookie.
