Baking Powder - 1 1/2 teaspoons
Butter - 300gms
White Sugar, fine granules - 1 1/2 cups
Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
Vanilla Extract - 2 teaspoons

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F (180C).
  2. Sift together all-purpose flour and baking powder twice together.
  3. Cut the butter through the sifted flour until it forms a crumbly mixture.
  4. Add sugar, salt and vanilla extract. Knead well until it forms a soft dough.
  5. Divide the dough into 4 dough balls of equal size.
  6. Roll each ball into 1cm thick disc.
  7. Using a cookie star shaped cookie cutter, stamp out the stars.
  8. Place the dough stars on the baking tray.
