 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   12       oz           SR flour
    4       oz           Margarine
      1/2   ts           Salt
    1                    Egg, beaten
    8       oz           Brown sugar
    1       t            Vanilla essence
   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.
