Biscuit/Cookie Recipe for you to try!

Everyone loves eating yummy stuff, right? 
Well today I'm sharing a super easy and yummy biscuit recipe. 

On a side note I once had a very confusing conversation about what a biscuit was, apparently Americans call, what we know as scones here in Australia, biscuits!

BISCUIT
150g Soft Butter ( I zipped mine in the microwave for 10 seconds)
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg
2 1/2 cups of plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2tsp milk
ICING
1 cup icing sugar
2 tbsp warm milk
food colouring
star biscuits

                   Here is how you make them
  •  Blend butter, sugar vanilla and egg until smooth
  • Then add flour, baking powder and milk and mix till combined
  •  Lightly knead mixture until it comes together
  • Wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate for 40 minutes
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
  • Roll out dough to half a centimetre thickness
  • Use cookie cutter to make biscuits
  • Pop in oven for 25 min. or until lightly brown, take out, cool!
  • Combine icing sugar and milk until smooth and add food colouring
  • Ice, add decorations if so desired and eat!
