The Coup De Main Guide on How To Stay Sane During Isolation.

The Coup De Main Guide on How To Stay Sane During Isolation.

With time moving both too fast and too slow currently, you might be feeling like you're stuck in a monotonous 'Groundhog Day' time loop, so we asked some of our favourite artists to share with you some insight on how they're coping with isolation and what they're doing indoors (to save lives!) to keep busy, sane, and safe.

We hereby present to you The Coup De Main Guide on How To Stay Sane During Isolation as follows below...

...and as the final chapter in our Guide On How To Stay Sane During Isolation we are going live with BENEE to entertain you for an hour.

If you want to decorate cookies with us, here's a shortbread recipe that's really easy:

- 250g Butter (softened)
- 3/4 cup Icing Sugar
- 1/2 cup Cornflour
- 1 1/2 cups Standard Grade Flour

Preheat oven to 150°C bake (140°C fan forced). Grease oven tray or line with baking paper. Beat Butter and Icing Sugar until pale and fluffy. Mix in Cornflour and Standard Grade Flour until the mixture comes together and forms a dough. On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1 cm thick and cut into shapes using biscuit cutters. Alternatively, roll dough into a log and slice into rounds, using a floured knife to prevent sticking. Place on prepared tray and bake 25 – 30 minutes, until shortbread is pale but crisp. Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.
