Sands Cookies


225g butter

180g castor sugar

340g plain flour

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

2 tsp vanilla essence


1.  Put butter in a saucepan and place over low heat until butter browns.  Pour into a large bowl and cool until beginning to set.  Stir in sugar and vanilla essence and beat well.

2.  Sift flour with bicarbonate of soda and slowly add to the butter mixture, mixing until a smooth dough is formed.

3.  Chill dough in fridge for 1 hour.  Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough between palms of hands to shape into balls of about 2 cm in diameter.

4.  Place on a lightly greased baking tray and bake in a moderate oven for 10-15 minutes.  Cookies should be firm and light golden brown.  Do not overbake cookies or they become very hard.
