Vanilla snap biscuits recipe

5 from 3 reviews

These vanilla biscuits are snappy, buttery and delicious. 



V185gms butter

1 cup caster sugar

1 ½ tsp vanilla extract

2 ½ cups flour

1 egg

1 egg yolk

icing sugar to dust


Preheat the oven to 180 c / 350 f

In a food processor mix the butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth

Add the flour, egg and egg yolk and process until the mixture forms a soft dough

Take the dough out the processor and knead slightly bringing it together in a ball and wrap it in cling film and place in the fridge for 30 minutes

Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface or between 2 sheets of baking paper until about ½ cm / 5mm thick

Cut the dough into approximately 7cm rounds

Place the dough rounds on a baking sheet that has been lined with baking paper or silicone baking sheets

Bake for 10 – 12 minutes until golden brown 

Remove the biscuits carefully from the baking tray and allow them to cool on a wire cooling rack as they have a tendency to carry over cooking and could turn too brown once removed from the oven (I generally cool all biscuits on a cooling rack).  

When cooled, dust them with some icing sugar or decorate as desired.
