  • 325g plain flour
  • 200g chilled salted butter
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla flavouring
  • 2 large egg yolks

Mix the flour, butter and sugar together
Add the egg yolks and vanilla, bind everything together till its like a bread dough.

Roll it into a sausage shape, how large depends on what size biscuits you want to make.
Wrap in cling film and put it into the fridge to let the butter set and make slicing easier, slice into thin slices and place on foil or grease proof paper and bake at 200c, about 15 mins.
Alternatively slice a little thicker, make a well in the centre and add a dollop of jam.

Why not try these made with coconut, or chopped cherries.

How long do you bake these and at which temperature? I'm guessing 375-200°F / 180-200°C for 10-15 mins, how close did I get?
They LOOK yummy :)
