Kid Friendly Shortbread Cookie Recipe. FaLALALALA

Want to keep the little darlings amused during this hectic time, here's a super simple shortbread cookie recipe easy enough for the kiddies.  You are going to need a digital scale or conversion calculator, but that's as tough as it'll be.

Ingredients: 250g of butter, 100g castor sugar, 250g plain flour and 1 x tsp pure vanilla extract.  If you have vanilla sugar (and who doesn't) you can use that and skip the vanilla extract.
Special Gear: Electric mixer, Cookie cutters and digital scale

Preheat the oven to 180c or 350f
Cream the butter and the sugar together with a mixer until fluffy
Add the vanilla extract or the aforementioned vanilla sugar, sieve in the flour and mix well, but don't over mix they'll be tough.
Remove the mixture from the bowl and roll out until it’s about 1cm thick
Cut out shapes and place onto a baking tray
Bake for 10 – 12 minutes or until they just begin to harden
Sprinkle a little sugar or decorative seasonal sprinkles over the top, leave to cool (if you can) and enjoy!
