1.In a bowl add all the dry ingredients, using a sieve and mix to combine.
2.in a separate bowl, add all the wet ingredients and use a whisk to combine. Mix until the sugar has dissolved.
3.Add the dry ingredients into the sweet and mix as little as possible, I start with a whisk, continue with a silicon spatula and finishing with my hands.
4.Place the dough in the fridge for 10-15 minutes (it makes it easier to handle).
5.Then divide the dough (keep half of it in the fridge while you are working on the other half) and add it on some parchment paper.
6.Roll it using a rolling pin, into a 1-1.5cm heigh.
7.Then use your cookie cutter to cut the biscuits in all sorts of shapes and remove the extra dough from in-between.
8.Bake in a preheated oven at 170°C for 10-12 minutes.
9.Optionally you can dust some icing sugar on top.
