1/2 lb butter (I use the regular kind. Butter needs to sit at room temperature for a while to be soft enough- not oily though.)
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 and 1/2 ounces cornflour
10 ounces of plain flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cream butter and sugar and then add in remaining ingredients. Mix well.
Turn out onto a long strip of greaseproof paper. Shape into a log and cut into 40 pieces.
Bake in a cool oven (160 C) for approximately 25 minutes until golden. (They brown up more after they are removed so be careful.) Cool on a wire rack.
