Instructions and steps:
Step 1 Put table spread, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.
Step 2 Shape dough into a ball and place on a large square of cling film. Roll dough into a log and wrap tightly in cling film.
Step 3 Refrigerate log for 2 hours, or overnight (if possible). When ready to bake, preheat oven to 180°C and line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
Step 4 Remove cling film from log; discard. Use a sharp knife to slice log into 15 rounds. Bake for 10–12 minutes until golden brown. Remove tray from oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes.
Step 5 Remove cookies carefully and place on a wire rack to cool.
If you freeze the log, thaw it before slicing and baking.
