Step 1

Preheat the oven to 160C and line a large baking tray.

Step 2

Take the butter out of the fridge and cut it into small cubes.

Step 3

In a large mixing bowl, add the caster sugar, Lofo Pantry flour, rice flour, vanilla and salt and stir until everything is evenly incorporated.

Step 4

Add in the cold butter, and using a rubbing motion, “rub” the butter into the flour mixture using your thumbs, index and middle fingers of each hand. Continue until all the butter is incorporated.

Step 5

Add in the ice cold water in small amounts at a time. Between each addition, collect the dough together and knead it until a smooth dough forms that no longer falls apart easily.

Step 6

Roll the dough out, either onto your lined baking tray or on a lightly floured surface until 1cm thick.

Step 7

Using cookie cutters, cut out as many cookies as the dough will allow, and distribute them across the tray.

Step 8

Add the white sugar onto a small plate. Lightly press each cookie into the sugar on both sides before returning each to the tray.

Step 9

Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden.
