melt- in- the- mouth vanilla biscuits

These delicious biscuits are exactly as the name implies melt-in-your-mouth. I make them in the food processor and they are very easy. You need to put them in the fridge for an hour before baking so not a last minute thing. But you can have the dough in the fridge or freezer ready for any last minute morning teas.

Melt-in-the-mouth Vanilla Biscuits
180g butter, softened, chopped
1t vanilla bean paste (you can use extract)
1/3C icing sugar plus extra for dusting
1 1/2 T milk
1 3/4 C plain flour
2T cornflour

1. Put butter, vanilla, icing sugar into food processor, whiz until smooth. Add milk whiz again. Add sifted flour and cornflour, whiz until just forms a dough.
2. Place into fridge for 10 minutes until firm enough to roll.
3. Roll dough into a 30cm log, wrap in plastic or baking paper and refrigerate for 1 hour.
4. Preheat oven to 160C. Grease oven trays (I usually use baking paper)
5. Cut dough into 4mm slices. Place on trays. Bake about 10 minutes or until just golden. Stand on trays 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool slightly.
6. While still warm, dust biscuits liberally with extra sifted icing sugar. Cool completely.
