3. Combine all ingredients then put in freezer for 15-20 minutes.

4. Roll out cookie dough between 2 sheets of baking paper, using a cookie cutter cut dough and place on oven tray (if dough becomes too sticky place it back in the freezer for another 5-10 minutes).

5. Cook for 15-20 minutes (or until cooked all the way through), then take out of oven to cool.

For filling:
