Today I really fancied some biscuits! I was trying to decide if I had enough ingredients in my store to make some but was put off because I hadn't got any eggs. Anyway, I remembered my granny used to make some biscuits called Melting Moments so I had a hunt about on the internet for a recipe, turns out there are a lot of different versions, most of which use an egg. Well with a bit of perseverance I found a recipe that didn't require an egg and made 28 biscuits. Very delicious. I don't really like my biscuits too sweet so this appeals to me, but if you have more of a sweet tooth than me you may wish to add a bit more sugar.
Ingredients175g s/r flour
50g icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
MethodPut flour, cornflour and icing sugar in food processor and mix briefly. Add butter (chopped into small chunks) and vanilla and mix until it comes together into sort of dough (can take a few minutes).
Roll mixture into small balls size of marble and place on baking tray with a little space in between.
Dip a fork in cold water and press down on each one to flatten slightly and score.
Bake for 10-15 mins at 160C fan/325F/gas 3.
