    1. Pre-heat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. In a bowl mix together the butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy.
    3. Add the egg and vanilla. Mix well until you get a nice smooth paste.
    4. Sieve the flour and salt, and fold it in with a wooden spoon or a spatula.
    5. Line a baking tray with baking parchment then pipe or spoon the biscuits in the shapes you like.
    6. Bake in the centre of the oven for 25 minutes or until crisp and golden. Keep your eyes on the biscuits because they bake quite quick and you don't want them to burn or be too crispy.

    these biscuits were brilliant and I will certainly make them again. They remained crisp in the tin until the last crumb. My granddaughter kept dipping in the tin and is eager for me to make some more.  -  13 Feb 2015


    My husband thought they were great and asked me to make more I find them quick and easy also not too sweet  -  01 Apr 2016


    Nice easy recipe to make and I whipped them up in about 5 minutes one Sunday morning before anyone was up. Nice buttery flavour and difficult to resist as they came out of the oven. Will definitely be making these again!!  -  26 Jul 2015
