Well, the cooking part of the baking went well but we struggled with temperatures, dough and butter.

It's lovely but not exactly what we were going for.

Cut out shapes and lay on a greased baking tray, sprinkle with a little paprika for decoration and bake at 180 degrees for 15-20 mins.

That should then apparently form a dough. No such luck. It was just crumbly and would not stick together. I ended up putting in at least another 100g of butter. It then has to sit in the fridge for 30 mins. Afterwards roll into little balls and put on a greased baking tray. Bake for 10-12 mins in a preheated over at 180 degrees.
We popped our fan oven to 160 degrees and kept checking them. The total cooking time was probably about 15 mins. 12 wouldn't have been enough but 15 might have been a little too long.
Then roll all the balls in icing sugar until they look like snowballs! They are quite delicious.
