  • 1 cup caster sugar

  • Icing sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 360 degree F.
  • Add room temperature butter to a bowl of an electric beat and beat the butter until the butter loosens up, then add sugar and beat butter – sugar mix until they are light and pale in color.
  • Add the vanilla extract. Beat until well combined.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together the flour and salt, then add them to the butter-and-sugar mixture. Mix on low speed until the dough starts to come together. Dump onto a surface dusted with flour and shape into a flat disk. Wrap in plastic and chill for 60 minutes.

  • Let it cool completely and then store it in air tight container for about 1 week.
