These tiny biscuits bake to a puffed top on a soft biscuit base.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 eggs
230g caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
300g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 tablespoons aniseeds, crushed

Method

  1. Beat eggs until light, then beat in sugar, a little at a time. Mixture should be thick and pale yellow. Add vanilla, then flour and baking powder, sifted together. Add aniseed and beat for 5 minutes. Drop mixture in half-teaspoonfuls, well apart, on a baking tray lined with lightly greased foil. Bake in a preheated moderately slow oven for about 12 minutes or until lightly coloured.
  2. Remove from oven, loosen biscuits on foil and leave them on it, uncovered and at room temperature, for 18 hours to dry. Store in airtight containers.
