Combine margarine, sugar and icing sugar in a large bowl and beat using a mixer until creamy. Add the sifted flour and salt. Mix until mixture forms a dough.

Knead dough together gently and form into a ball. Place dough between two pieces of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll it out to about 6 mm thick. Place dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius. Use a lightly floured cookie cutter to cut out cookies and place on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake, one baking sheet at a time, for 20 minutes or until lightly golden.
