  • 2 ½ cups plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

2. Mix in flour and salt until combined.

3. Split mix into two, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for thirty minutes.

4. Preheat oven to 180C.

5. Remove first portion of dough from fridge and roll out on a floured surface to under a cm. 

6. Cut dough into bunny shapes with cookie cutters (works equally well in other shapes)

7. Arrange biscuits on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. They won't rise very much,  so they can be placed close together on the sheet.

8. Bake for 13 minutes or until the edges of the cookies begin to brown.

9. Cool biscuits on a cooling rack.

10. Roll out, cut, and repeat with the second half of the dough.
