Heat the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas 5. Beat 125g butter and 55g sugar until light and fluffy, then stir in a drop of vanilla essence and 180g flour until you have a smooth paste.

Roll out to 1cm thick, cut into 20-24 rounds (or hearts if you have a heart-shaped cutter), chill for 20 minutes, then bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and cool on a wire rack.
