    Yield:

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a larbe bowl, beat the butter until light, thick and airy.
    2. 2
      Add the sugar, vanilla and corn flour, beat again - at a low speed, it will go every where otherwise.
    3. 3
      Sift in the plain flour and stir to incorporate.
    4. 4
      Seperate into two equal parts.
    5. 5
      Roll into logs using foil to cover.
    6. 6
      Refridgerate for 30 minutes (or until firm, freezer would do this faster I guess).
    7. 7
      Remove from fridge and foil, cut each log into 15 slices.
    8. 8
      Bake on lined trays.
    9. 9
      Bake at 150oC for 20-30 minutes until golden.
    10. 10
      Once out of the oven, cool for 5 minutes on the tray.
    11. 11
      Remove to airer and sift extra icing sugar over the top and let cool completely.
    12. 12
      Note - these logs can be frozen (upto a month) or refridgerated (for upto a week) ready for use. If frozen, bring be sure that they are thawed prior to baking.

      These cookies are tender like shortbread, but sweet like sugar cookies.
