Easy As Shortbread

(Sorry about the shitty picture, I wasn't really interested it making these look good at midnight-ish, just wanted to see how they tasted, haha.)

1 cup vegan margarine (I use
Olivani Lite)
1 cup icing sugar
1 cup cornflour
2 cups plain flour

Preheat oven to 150°C

Cream marg and sugar until it's light and fluffy. Don't be weak about it, it really needs a good creaming. Sift in the cornflour and flour, and knead.

Like the cookies below, you can roll into balls and squish a bit on a baking sheet covered baking tray, or you can roll the dough out and cut it into shapes. Cocks and tits would be pretty humourous, depending on who you're planning on giving these to. Might want to stick to hearts and stars for Nana. They should be between a half a cm and 1cm thick.

Bake for 25 - 30 minutes. Keep an eye on them, they're not suppose to go brown, but "slightly golden", aww bless. Remove from oven, cool, devour. Or you could dip them in chocolate and let them set, OR make some chocolate filling and squish it between them... that'd be pretty sweet.
