If you don't have animal shapes, you could use any other cutter or simply cut the sugar cookie dough into squares with a knife #versatile





Ingredients

2 1/2 cups flour (375 gm)

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup butter (170 gm)

1 cup powdered sugar (115 gm)

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract


Method

-Preheat the oven to 180 C

-Mix the flour and salt together and serve aside

-Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla to this and mix again until incorporated

-Add the flour to this mixture in 3 installments until it becomes a soft dough

-This will need to be refrigerated for at least an hour or more for best results
