2 cups all-purpose gluten free flour

¼ teaspoon salt

220 grams unsalted butter, room temperature

½ cup powdered confectioners’ sugar, and a little more for decorating

1 teaspoon Kakadu Plum Co. Lemon Myrtle Blend

{ METHOD }

In a small bowl, sift together flour and salt and set aside.

With an electric mixer (or hand held beater) cream the butter until light and creamy. Add the sugar and beat until smooth.

Slowly incorporate the flour mixture followed by the lemon myrtle until a firm dough is formed.

Form dough into a sausage and cover with cling wrap, placing it in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Roll out the dough to about 1cm thickness and cut into star shaped or Christmas tree shapes.

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden at 180 degrees.

Once cool, sprinkle with extra sugar if you wish!
