This recipe comes from an extended family member of sorts. Lisa gave us all a batch of these biscuits for Christmas one year, with the recipe attached to the canister. I loved the idea of giving the recipe along with the treats – especially because these biscuits are sublime.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250g butter, cubed
80g pure icing sugar, plus extra for coating
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
300g plain flour
70g roasted pecans, finely chopped

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C and line 2–3 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla using electric beaters for about 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy.
  3. In a separate bowl, add the flour and nuts and stir to combine. Add the butter mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon until everything is incorporated.
  4. Drop heaped teaspoons of the dough onto the baking trays, making sure to leave a few centimetres between each dollop. Flatten them slightly with the back of the spoon.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes, but keep an eye on the biscuits. Rotate the trays a couple of times to ensure they cook evenly. The biscuits are ready when the bottoms are golden brown and there are flecks of gold on top.
  6. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack for a few minutes. Sift a thick layer of icing sugar onto a plate and coat both sides of each biscuit in the sugar.
  7. Once the biscuits are completely cool, they can be stored in an airtight jar or container for up to a week.
