Delicious bikkie recipe everyone will love! Can easily be made gluten free by substituting for gluten free ingredients


Ingredients (serves 4)

Method

  1. Beat the butter, icing sugar and vanilla in a bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy.

  • I give my children honey, multivitamins and allergic rhinitis (which dries up the nasal drip responsible for the cough), and if coughing begins they get a 12 hour cough medicine. My 4 year old is prone to bronchiole pneumonia around this time of year, so best to dose them up than need to go to emergency!
