Vanilla & cinnamon shortbread stars
Prep Time : 0:20 | Cook Time : 0:15 | Total Time : 0:35 | Serving : 65 biscuits person.


  • 250g butter, at room temperature

  • 125g (3/4 cup) icing sugar mixture

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 300g (2 cups) plain flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 60g (1/4 cup) raw sugar


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Use an electric beater to beat together the butter, icing sugar and vanilla in a bowl until pale and creamy.

  • Step 2

    Stir in the flour and cinnamon until the dough comes together. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Shape into a disc and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes to rest.

  • Step 3

    Roll out the dough between 2 sheets of non-stick baking paper until 5mm thick. Use a 5cm-diameter star-shaped pastry cutter to cut 65 stars from the dough. Place on lined trays. Place trays in the freezer for 15 minutes to chill.

  • Step 4

    Sprinkle biscuits with sugar and bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Set aside on the trays for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
