    I was not able to locate a recipe for marie biscuits; however, you might wish to try a basic vanilla wafer cookie recipe to see if it approximates what you're looking for.

    1/2 cup powdered sugar
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    1/3 cup shortening
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 cups cake flour
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 tablespoon water

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

    Cream together sugars, shortening, egg, vanilla extract and salt in a large bowl.

    Add the flour and baking powder. Add 1 tablespoon of water and continue mixing until dough forms a ball.

    Roll dough into 3/4-inch balls and flatten slightly onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until cookies are light brown.

    Makes 50 to 56 cookies.

    Hope this helps. Good luck!

    You might like to try one of these and see if they're close to a Marie Biscuit:

    1/4 cup butter, softened
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1 egg
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup cornflour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    DIRECTIONS:
    Cream butter or margarine and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla.
    Stir remaining ingredients together and add. Mix well.
    Roll 1/8 inch thick on floured surface. Cut into 2 1/2 inch rounds. Prick with fork. Grease baking sheet. Bake in 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven until golden, about 8 to 10 minutes. Allow a bit more baking time if rolled thicker.



    1 beaten egg yolk
    3 tablespoons maple syrup or molasses
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1.5 tablespoons oil
    1/4 cup milk
    1 tablespoon uncooked oatmeal
    1 cup flour (white, wheat or combo)
    1 tablespoon soy flour
    1 tablespoon wheat germ
    1 tablespoon nonfat dry milk.

    Blend wet ingredients, add dry ingredients. Dough will be stiff. Roll dough thin and cut into strips or desired shapes. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet. They can be made without the last 3 ingredients, but they add to the nutritional value.

    I have a recipe from the Woman's Institute in South Africa for Marie Biscuits and will post it shortly. As a matter of interest, you can purchase them in the US, only they are called Maria and are usually found in the South American section of the international isle. I get mine at Safeway.

    From this website:
    http://asiarecipe.com/cgi/web/webbbs_config.cgi/noframes/read/1678

    "Marie biscuits are round, flat, "butter" biscuits, about 4mm thick and 6.5 centimetres in diameter as far as I am concern. However, some recipe called for substitute of either tennis or ginger biscuits.( dont know what they are )

    Alternatively, you can use bisquik to make your own biscuit.

    2 cups bisquik
    1/2 cup cold water
    1 cup milk

    to taste maybe a little salt and sugar. do we need baking powder ?

    Mixed all ingredient, drop by large spoonful onto greased baking tray and baked for 8-10 minutes. Brushed with butter if desire.

    ENJOY ! "
