200 g (250 ml) white Sugar
10 ml cream of tartar
2,5 ml salt
250 g butter
5 ml bicarbonate of soda
30 ml milk
2 eggs (Large)
5 ml vanilla essence

Preheat oven to 180ºC.

- Rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
- Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in the milk.

- Mix well to form smooth dough.
- Cover the dough with plastic foil and place in fridge for 30 minutes.
- On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out to 4 mm thickness and press out with cookie cutter of your choice. Mine was almost to thick, so be careful of that.
