  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
  • Place flour, sugar, butter, egg and baking powder into mixing bowl and mix 20 sec/speed 6.
  • Place some sugar onto a plate. Pinch together 1 tbsp dough and roll into a small ball (approx. 3cm in diameter). Dip the top in sugar, place onto prepared baking tray and flatten with a fork into a round biscuit shape. Repeat with remaining dough and bake 20 minutes (180°C) or until light golden. Allow to cool on a cooling rack before serving or storing in an air-tight container.
