READY IN: 35mins




  • Put butter and sugar together in a bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Add flour and using your hands, gradually work it until the mixture forms a smooth dough. Roll into a sausage shape about 30cm long. Pat the sides to form either a square or a triangular log.
  • Sprinkle a thick layer of demerara sugar on a piece of baking parchment. Press each side of the dough into the sugar to coat it.
  • Wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes until firm.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to Gas 3. Remove dough from cling film and cut into thick slices. Place slightly apart on a non-stick baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes, until they are just starting to brown.
