I use the vanilla biscuit recipe from the Edmonds book and use half the amount of sugar in it
4oz butter
4oz sugar or less (recipe actually states 8oz but I don't use anywhere near that)
2oz sultanas or choc chips or walnuts or macadamia's
few drops van essence
pinch salt optional
1 egg
1tsp baking powder
8oz flour
method as above but I bake at 180C for 20mins.
can also use peanuts and add 1Tbsp cocoa powder mixed to a paste with a small amount of water, to make peanut brownies.
Sometimes I add almond essence and leave out sultanas and dip in either sugar or hundreds and thousands for a change. A very versatile recipe.
Sorry about imperial measurements but its an old book without the metric equivalents.
