how to bake vanilla biscuits

saturday mornings [when they are like this morning] are the most beautiful mornings in the week* today is the most perfect summer day, so perfect infact that i have no idea what to do with it.

one thing i have made up my mind to do today is to bake. just normal vanilla biscuits. i dont think its healthy to be as excited as i am about baking biscuits.

and this is my recipe:
1 egg
2 tsp milk
125g butter
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup plain flour
1 1/2 cups self raising flour

Vanilla Biscuits Method:
In a bowl sift the plain flour and set aside. In another bowl sift the self raising flour and salt. Cream butter and add sugar gradually and beat until light and fluffy. Then add the well beaten egg, vanilla and milk. Add sifted dry ingredients except the plain flour then gradually work in the plain flour until dough is firm enough to handle. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour. Roll out dough to 3mm thickness on lightly floured board and cut with floured 5cm biscuit cutter. Put the Vanilla Biscuits on lightly greased oven trays and sprinkle with sugar or hundreds and thousands. Bake the Vanilla Biscuits in moderate oven for 10 minutes.

lastnight i dreamt about Turkey. and its amazing hot, spicy air and the people and well just everything. I feel upset when i think that im not there, right now. however today is a sort-of turkish day and you should enjoy it while it lasts*
