Vanilla "Love" Biscuits

These biscuits speak for themselves, just the aroma that fills the kitchen when  in the oven says it all. These  crunchy goodness are so easy to prepare, requires only 6 ingredients and stays in the oven for just 15 minutes. The only issue is that they never last in my house!!!!! Bake these biscuits for your loved ones and they will love you forever and ever... Here we go

3 cups of strong bread flour or plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
225g butter (diced)
1/2 cup plus 1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon whole milk
1 egg
Little vanilla bean paste or 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Pre-heat oven to gas 160 degrees celsius. Place the butter and sugar in a bowl of a stand mixer; beat until pale and fluffy. 

2. Add egg, vanilla, milk and beat for 2 minutes. 

3. Sift in the flour and salt in small batches. Change the hook of the stand mixer to a dough hook, mix until well combined. (at this point, I use my hands just so the dough can bind).

4. Place the dough in between cling films, flatten and put in the fridge for 30 - 45 minutes.

5. Cut out your shapes and place cut out biscuits on a lined baking tray. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

6. Leave to cool down... Enjoy with cold milk
