Fool Proof Method  (takes a little more time and a mixer)

Divide eggs and whip egg whites to meringue and set aside

Add softened butter and fibersugar to mixing bowl and beat with paddle attachment or whisk for several minutes.  When that is nice and fluffy add in egg yolks one at a time while still beating.  

Fold in flour, if using mixer make sure you use slow setting.  Finally fold in the whipped egg whites.  Pour into baking tins and bake for around 25-30 mins at 170C fan.

Everything else same as quick method
