These cookies are easy to make and can be stored in an air tight box for some time. They are crunchy and have a bite. Something for a hot cup of tea or to go along with a strong coffee.
(will make enough)
375 g all purpose flour
200 g brown sugar
2.5 teaspoons vanilla sugar
250 g butter
Mix all ingredients with dough hooks. Then knead by hand until dough is formed. Divide dough into several pieces and form rolls of about 2 to 3 cm in diamter. Wrap dough rolls into clinch film and put into fridge for about an hour or until dough is hard.
Preheat oven to 180°C to 200°C. Line out a baking tray with baking paper.
Cut 0.5 cm thick slices from rolls and place them on baking tray. Bake for about 10 minutes until lightly browned. Take out of oven and let cool on cooling rack.
Side remark: you can store the dough tightly wrapped in clinch film in the freezer for quite a while. So you will baked english cookies in no time for unexpected guests.
