Butter Biscuit Recipe

1 egg
225gms butter
3/4 cups castor sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/3 cups flour
or 2 cups flour and 1/3 cup of cocoa'

mix first six ingredients with electric mixer until fluffy.  Gradually stir in flour by hand until well mixed.  Chill for 2 to 3 hours in refridgerator.  Preheat oven to 200C.  Roll out half of the dough at a time on a floured board until about 1/2 cm thick.  Cut using cutters and place on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for approx 6 minutes, in a gas oven, until edges are starting to brown.  Remove and cool on baking sheet .  When cool use icing for decoration by spreading evenly over the whole cookie.  Sweet Sugarbelle has the most amazing walk throughs on decorating and biscuit making.  These biscuits where perfect for cutting and tasted great before decorating.  Unfortunately the dogs broke in while we were playing in the garden so nobody but Stinky Chinko got to try the final product.  Kiki stood at the door looking nervous and wanting to distance herself from what was taking place inside, either that or she was the worst look out in the history of biscuit heists.
