don't look....!!

I'm just having one tiny Vanilla Crisp with my cup of tea - don't tell anyone!


Here's the recipe which came from the Quarter Acre Cafe in Levin:
125gm butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup cornflour
1 tsp baking powder
raspberry or strawberry jam
 Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease two baking trays. Cream butter and sugar until white, then add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Sift in the flour, baking powder and cornflour and mix gently. 
Put generous teaspoons of the mixture onto the trays and bake for 8 to 10 mins or until golden brown.
Cool on a rack and when completely cold sandwich pairs together with jam and icing.

To make icing put 125gms icing sugar, 100 gms butter and 1 tspn vanilla essence into a bowl and beat until light and fluffy.

To finish dust with icing sugar.

Back soon,
Carole
