    These biscuits are traditionally made in Greece round Easter. I like them any time of year, and also make them at Christmas.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 24 

    • 250g butter softened
    • 3/4 cup (185g) white sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 1/2 teaspoon almond essence
    • 2 1/4 cups (280g) plain flour
    • 1/2 cup icing sugar for rolling

    Directions
    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Grease baking trays.
    2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and egg until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and almond extracts. Blend in the flour to form a dough, you may have to knead by hand at the end. Take about a teaspoon of dough at a time and roll into balls, logs or 'S' shapes. Place cookies 3-5cm apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
    3. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned and firm. Allow cookies to cool completely before dusting with icing sugar.

    Altered ingredient amounts. I used lemon essence instead of almond and found it helps to refrigerate the dough for awhile before using. It is a very soft, delicate dough. - 15 Dec 2008

    I shaped mine into candy canes to hang on the tree for Santa on Christmas Eve. - 15 Dec 2008
