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
- In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, and beat well.
- Sift the flour and baking powder together, then gradually add this to the creamed mixture, ensuring it's well combined.
- 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.
