Gradually beat in the caster sugar then stir in the flour. Use your hands to gather the sticky mixture together into a soft but not sticky dough.
Roll the dough into all is about the size of walnuts and place well apart on the baking trays. Dip a fork into cold water and press on top of each ball to Flatten it and imprint the fork pattern.
