Pre heat the oven to 180c Beat the butter and sugar till light and fluffy.

Gradually beat in the cornflour, then the flour.

Knead for a minute (you can add a bit more flour if the mixture is too sticky) then roll out to 1/4 inch thick.

Cut into rounds and place on a floured tray at least a couple of fingers width apart.

Bake for 15mins or a wee bit less till very light golden. Sprinkle with a wee bit of caster sugar as they come out of the oven if you like. Cool on a wire rack.

Store these in an airtight container.
