A delicious biscuit with vanilla icing. Very moist and crumbly and very easy to make! It almost has a cheesecake flavour.

  • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

These are really yum, and even yummier when iced with lemon icing! I would advise people to chill the dough first as it's quite sticky, but only if you're like me and can't resist rolling and flattening cookies when it says not to. - 13 Jul 2011
