 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    6       oz           Flour
    2       oz           Cornflour
    5       oz           Butter
    1       oz           Ground almonds
    3       oz           Caster sugar
 
   Set oven to 350F or Mark 4. Grease a baking sheet.
   Cream the butter in a mixing bowl. Sift together the
   flour and cornflour and add, with the almonds and
   sugar, to the butter. Work the ingredients together
   with the hands. Turn out on to a very lightly floured
   surface and finish kneading until the dough is smooth.
   Roll the dough into two rounds each 1/4 inch thick.
   Prick well with a fork and mark each circle into six
   triangles. Transfer to the baking sheet. Bake for
   about 25-30 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before
   cutting and then place on a wire rack to finish
   cooling.
