The shortbread dough doesn`t need long kneading, it`s enough to gather it all into a sphere. If the dough is sticky, you need a little more flour; if it is crumbly, add a teaspoon of cold water or sour cream.

Divide the dough in two parts, form disks and put to the fridge for 1 hour.

Than preheat the oven to 180 C (356 F), roll the dough on floured baking paper to 3-5 mm thick and cut the cookies with cookie cutter bunny.
