3. Preheat the oven to 180C. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

4. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is about 3mm thick. Use a large round cookie cutter to cut out your biscuit shapes and place on the lined baking tray. Use a smaller round cookie cutter to cut out the centre of each biscuit. Then use a knife or the tip of a spoon to cut out the cog shapes.
