DIRECTIONS

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180c and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Beat the butter for 8-10mins until very pale and thick.
  • Add the 2 tbsp icing sugar and beat well again.
  • Add the egg yolk and vanilla and whisk until incorporated, then mix in the brandy.
  • Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix until you have a thick dough (it will be difficult to mix with an electric mixer at this stage).
  • Place the mixtuer in plastic wrap and refridgerate for 30 minutes.
  • Form the dough into small balls (about the size of cherry tomatoes) and put them on a baking tray, leaving a reasonable (but not excessive) amount of room between each ball.
  • Bake for approximately 20 mins or until they are lightly golden.
  • Remove from oven and leave to cool for 10-15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, line another tray with baking paper and sprinkle with half of the icing sugar.
  • Place the slightly cooled biscuits in a single layer on top of the icing sugar and sprinkle the remaining icing sugar on top.
  • Store in an airtight container.
