Sue’s Lady Alice biscuits
This recipe came to Sue from her great-aunt, who lived in Port Pirie.
340gm butter, softened
115gm icing sugar
340gm plain flour
115gm custard powder
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
(Measurements have been converted to metric from imperial).
- Preheat oven to 160 degrees.
- Cream butter, vanilla and icing sugar in a bowl. Add flour and custard powder and mix until smooth.
- Roll teaspoons of biscuit mixture into balls and place on a lined baking tray 2cm apart
- Gently flatten each ball with a fork. After flattening, place the tray in the fridge and let the balls chill (takes approximately 1 hour).
- Place the tray in oven and bake biscuits for 10-15 minutes until just golden around the edges. Leave to cool on the trays for five minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
