What you need:

  • 175g/6oz Odlums Cream plain Flour
  • 50g/2oz Caster Sugar
  • 125g/4oz Butter (at room temperature)

To Decorate

  • 1 Strawberries
  • Whipped Cream
  • Icing Sugar for dredging

How to:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas4. Lightly grease a flat baking tray.
  2. Put the flour and sugar into a bowl. Add the butter and rub into the dry Ingredients, continue until mixture forms a dough.
  3. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and gently knead. Next roll out to 5mm / 1/4" thickness. Cut into 8cm / 3" rounds or heart shapes; this will make about 12. Place on the prepared tin and bake for about 10 to 15 minutes until a pale brown colour. Keep an eye on them as they burn very easily!
  4. Leave on tin for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire tray to cool completely. Once cold, store in an airtight tin.
