  • STEP 1

    Preheat your oven to 180°C

  • STEP 4

    Roll out balls of dough the size of walnuts and place on baking parchment/paper on a baking tray

  • STEP 5

    Using a fork, gently press the dough ball to squash it and create a pattern on the cookie, then press the fork in the opposite direction to create a criss cross pattern

  • STEP 6

    Place cookies in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are slightly browning

  • STEP 7

    Remove the cookies from the tray and lay on a wire cooling rack. Be careful with these cookies as they crumble easily!
