These lovely thin biscuits are perfect for nibbling!

Golden, crunchy and not too sweet.

Ingredients: for about 60!

130g butter

100g sugar

3 sachets of vanilla sugar (or a few drops of essence)

190g plain flour

3 egg whites

How to:  Using beaters, cream the butter and sugars together, then add the egg whites one by one and beat until the mixture is fluffy. Add the flour and beat in to get a stiff wet dough.  Take a freezer bag and cut of a tiny triangle off one corner, spoon the dough into the freezer bag and force the dough through the corner with the hole forming lines of dough about 5cm long. Leave a few cms between the lines or they’ll merge whilst baking. Bake at 200°C for 12 mins. until golden. Remove to a wire rack and leave to cool.

Perfect with a cuppa or served with a chocolate mousse!

  1. Hi Candy! Do you know if these freeze well? I want to make some tonight but think 60 is even a few too many just for me! they look awesome x

    • I don’t think these freeze well, I’ve read they go soggy when they thaw. They do keep for at least a week in an air-tight tin. You could always try making half?? 60 does sound alot but they are pretty small, thin and airy 🙂

  2. Yum yum! These look fantastic!

  3. They look absolutely delicious!
