in the lunch box - basic biscuits

This biscuit recipe is one of my fav's. It is just so versatile. You can add anything to it and change the flavour or taste, depending on what you've got in the pantry - or simply add nothing and enjoy them as a simple butter biscuit.
We had a few last Easter eggs hanging in the fridge all broken, so I thought I'd use them up and make this batch a choc chip version.

Vanilla Biscuits
125g butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla ess.
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
Heat oven to 180 degrees.
Beat butter and sugar until smooth. Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix until smooth.
Roll into small balls and place on lined tray. Press fork onto balls gently to flatten slightly.
Bake for 10-15 min or until brown.
Remember you can use this as your base. By simply adding dried fruit, choc chips, different essence flavours, chia seeds, golden syrup, chopped nuts, etc you will have a completely different tasting biscuit. Even changing to brown sugar makes a yummy change :)
