250g butter, softened
1/2 cup pure icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups plain flour
1/2 cup custard powder
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Place butter, sugar and vanilla into a food processor. Process for 2 minutes or until well combined.
Add flour and custard powder. Pulse until just combined (don't over-process or biscuits will not have a fine texture).
Roll heaped teaspoonfuls of mixture into small balls. Place onto prepared baking trays. Press with a floured fork to flatten slightly. Bake for 12 minutes or until light golden. Allow to stand on trays for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining biscuit mixture.
