100g butter or margarine
½ tsp vanilla essence
1 Tbsp UHT milk
50g castor sugar
20g nuts of your choice, coarsely chopped
100g self-raising flour
50g plain flour
Lightly grease 2 baking trays and preheat oven at 180°C.
Cream butter or margarine, essence and sugar. Add milk and continue to beat until light.
Sift in flours, add nuts and mix. Form a dough using your hands. Roll the dough into small cherry-sized balls and place them well apart on prepared trays. Press down lightly with a fork to flatten the cookies. Bake for 15 minutes.
