A quick and utterly delicious butter biscuit recipe, from my kitchen to yours 💖.

125g butter, softened

1/2 cup caster sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 egg, at room temperature

2 cups plain flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon milk

2 tablespoons pure icing sugar, to serve or dip in chocolate and sprinkles for a variation


1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla in a small bowl until pale and creamy. Add egg and mix until well combined. Sift flour and baking powder over butter mixture. Add milk and stir until just combined.

3. Using 2 teaspoons of dough at a time, roll dough into balls. Place on baking trays lined with baking paper. Using a lightly-floured fork, flatten biscuits slightly (allow room for spreading).

4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, swapping trays over in oven after 10 minutes, or until light golden. Allow to cool on trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Dust with icing sugar. Serve.
