This recipe comes from a book called "Afternoon Tea" put together by the wonderful Frankie magazine.
Recipe: Mummy Biscuits
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 salt teaspoon baking powder
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Using an electric beater, cream butter, and gradually add brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla and beat well. Sift flour, salt and baking powder into butter mixture and stir until you form a dough.
2. Line a baking tray with baking paper (alternatively you could grease with butter). Roll portions of the cookie dough into balls, place on tray and squash flat with a fork.
3. Bake for about 20 minutes or until slightly brown at the edges
4. Place on cooling rack for about 5 minutes before dusting with icing sugar.
Yum! These little biscuits tasted a bit like nutty shortbread. And the mixture was quite dry, so I ended up adding another egg.
Happy baking :) :)
