All Butter Biscuits

A great cookie for cutters and easy to decorate!

I made these for my daughters 3rd birthday but im planning on making some Christmas ones this week. Best get out the red and green colouring!

Makes 24

90g unsalted butter
100g caster sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
200g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

To decorate I used Royal icing easily made with icing sugar, water and your choice of food colouring!

Pre heat oven to 180C

Cream the butter and sugar

Add the beaten egg & vanilla essence

Combine the flour, baking powder & salt
Add to wet mix

Form a ball with the dough and wrap in cling film (saran wrap) and chill in the fridge for an hour

Once chilled roll on a lightly floured surface

Use what ever cookie cutters you like or if you have none you can cut into shapes with a knife

Bake for 10 mins

Once cooled you can ice & decorate!
