A very simple yet incredibly more-ish plain biscuit that is lovely for a snack, and can be "jazzed up" if you want to make it a bit more special.

Ingredients (makes 32 Biscuits)

  • 125 gm Butter (softened)
  • 3/4 cup Caster Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
  • 1 Egg (geaten)
  • 2 cups Plain Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder


  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, and beat well.
  2. Sift the flour and baking powder together, then gradually add this to the creamed mixture, ensuring it's well combined.
  3. Roll mixture into walnut-size balls, and place on greased and lined baking trays. Flatten each biscuit with a fork. Bake at 190 degrees C for approximately 12 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown.


This recipe originally came from New Zealand, and was a favourite of my sister when she lived there. It's very versatile, as you can use brown sugar if you want a more "caramel" flavoured bikkie, add a little cocoa for a chocolate bikkie, or you can sandwich a couple of cookies together with jam & icing, or you can dip half the cookie in chocolate.
