DIRECTIONS

  • Cream together sugar and butter (can use all butter or half and half like I do).
  • Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  • If using spices add them at this point, I like a combination of 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp of cinnamon and half a tsp of allspice. but have also made them using a cup of chocolate chips.
  • Add in the flour a cup at a time (if you are finding it a little dry add a tsp or so of water).
  • Roll out between two sheets of baking paper (thanks wife2abadge for this tip!) and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  • I roll out about half a centimetre thick (I'm in Europe and don't do inches, sorry!) when cutting out and put on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 400 for about 6-10 minutes, the time taken depends on the size of cutters you have used.
  • Cool for a minute on the cookie sheet then transfer to a wire rack before decorating.
  • (This is just a personal note for me! 1 cup butter = 225g).
