Make sure that the butter is soft. Cream the butter and the castor sugar until light and fluffy. Next add the eggs, one at a time and add the vanilla. Incorporate the flour until you reach a thick, sticky dough. Cover the dough in clingwrap and refrigerate for an hour or two.

When ready to roll out, preheat oven to 180°C. Roll the dough out thinly and use a festive-themed cookie cutter to cut shapes out of the dough.

Place onto a baking sheet and bake for 10  – 15 mins or until they are a light tea colour. Remove and allow to cool.

In a smal bowl, mix 3 Tbs icing sugar with a drop of water and stir until you reach a thick, pipe-able consistency.

Pipe an outline on each cookie and dust with edible gold dust.
