How to Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C. Place butter and sugar in the bowl of a food processor and process until pale and creamy. Sift over the combined flours, cinnamon and salt, and process until mixture just comes together. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until a soft dough forms (it will be quite crumbly). Shape into a disc and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.
  2. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to a 2mm-thick disc. Use a 5cm-diameter star-shaped pastry cutter to cut 40-44 stars from dough. Place on 2 baking trays. Bake in oven, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 15 minutes or until golden. Set aside on trays for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar and serve with iced Christmas puddings.
