1Preheat oven to 160C (fan forced)

2In a bowl cream Nuttelex, sugar, golden syrup then add the egg paste substitute, vanilla & continue to mix

3Sift the dry ingredients and add to butter mixture to form a dough

4Next, knead dough for a couple of minutes then wrap in cling film and pop it in the fridge to rest for 30 minutes

5Remove dough from fridge and roll between 2 pieces of baking paper (or a lightly floured bench) to 0.5 cm thick then cut out with star shape cookie cutter. Then make a decent size hole in each star with a toothpick or narrow straw for the string to be threaded through
