a wonderful recipe from my dear friend Douglas H.
Preheat oven to 150C fan forced
Beat butter, sugar and vanilla till light and fluffy (approx 5 mins)
Stir in sifted flour and almonds
Roll rounded teaspoons of mixture into balls.
Place 2cm apart on greased oven trays.
Press slightly with a fork.
Bake for for about 20 minutes or until pale straw colour.
Let stand 10 minutes on tray before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
When cool, sprinkle with icing sugar.
Makes about 35-40 biscuits
I rolled half the batch & 'formed' the other half using a teaspoon.
The unrolled biscuits looked nicer and less uniform in my opinion.
