Butterscotch Biscuits(Scottish)

The ingredients are:
12 oz SR flour 4 oz Margarine 1/2 tsp Salt 1 Egg, beaten 8 oz Brown sugar 1 tsp Vanilla essence

The recipe yield is:
4 Servings

Set oven to 350F or Mark 4. Grease a baking sheet. Melt the sugar, margarine and vanilla essence together in a saucepan very gently over a low heat. Remove from the heat. When the mixture has cooled add the beaten egg and mix together. Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the cooled egg/fat/sugar mixture. Knead into a stiff dough. This will be fairly dry, but it needs no extra moisture. Roll out the dough on a floured surface into 1/2 inch thickness and cut out the biscuits with a 2 inch biscuit cutter. Place on the baking sheet with sufficient space to allow them to spread. Bake for 20 minutes until light golden in colour. >From the booklet Scottish Teatime Recipes Typed By Ray Watson
