Empire Biscuits

From: Linda McCartney’s Home Cooking, p. 160

Plain buttery biscuits with vanilla flavour.

Making these biscuits is quite quick and easy as the dough is spooned in small pieces onto the baking-sheet. These biscuits do need either butter or any other flavour to complement the vanilla- I tried making them with margarine and they turned out quite plain.

Gluten-Free: Using gluten-free flour worked ok, but the biscuits turned hard after 2 or 3 days in a tin.

Vegan: Use margarine or vegan butter and plant-based milk. Make sure you add enough vanilla or even another interesting taste, such as grated lemon zest, cocoa or aniseed.
