Almond Vanilla Biscuits
1/2 cup flaked almonds
75g white/dark/milk chocolate, melted, to decorate
185g butter, softened
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups plain flour
Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
Make basic biscuit mix: Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until pale and creamy. Add egg. Beat until combined. Sift flour over butter mixture. Using a wooden spoon, stir to combine.
Roll biscuit dough out between 2 sheets of baking paper until 4mm thick. Cut rounds using a cookie cutter. Place on prepared trays. Re-roll remaining dough and repeat. Sprinkle almonds over rounds. Press to secure.
Bake for 8 minutes or until light golden. Stand on trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Drizzle with chocolate. Set aside for 5 minutes to set. Serve.
