And…voila!

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F (160°C fan forced)
  2. Sift flour and salt into a bowl and rub in butter using your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Add sugar and beaten egg to the mixture and knead on a floured surface until it stiffens.
  4. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for around 30 min.
  5. Roll out onto a floured surface and cut out desired shapes. Repeat!
  6. Taking the back end of your pen/pencil, make a punch sized hole near the edge of your cookie.
  7. Placed on a lined baking tray and bake for 12-15 min or until golden.
  8. Once ready, leave to cool down before decorating with chosen ingredients.
  9. Taking your string, thread through holes made in the cookies to resemble tree decorations and tie. You could even make a long chain of Christmas cookies to hang around the house!
