  1. Cream the butter and sugar together until it is pale and fluffy. I do this in a free standing mixer.
  2. Scrape down the sides of the bowl a couple of times and then beat in the vanilla extract.
  3. In a small bowl or mug whisk together the eggs and beat into the sugar mixture a little at a time.Mixing well before each addition and scraping down the sides intermittently.
  4. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and milk powder into the batter and mix until smooth and well combined. Be careful not to over mix as biscuits tend to be tough when overworked.
  5. Gather into a disc, wrap in clingfilm and chill for at least an hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 170 C and line two baking trays with baking paper or I use bakoglide. Lightly dust the surface with flour and roll the dough out to the thickness of 2mm. I cut the dough in half and put one half back in the fridge. My dough kept getting too soft so in actual fact I popped it in the freezer for five mins at one point.

  7. I used a 5 cm round cutter and a large and small piping nozzle to cut out and decorate the little beauties.

  8. Arrange the biscuits with gaps in between and bake in batches in the middle of the oven for 11 minutes until crisp on the outer edges and golden brown.
  9. Leave to cool on the baking tray for a few minutes before gently transferring to a wire rack.
  10. To make the icing melt the chocolate and beat in the butter. Gradually add the icing sugar and mix until pale and light.
  11. In a cup mix the milk and milk powder together and add to the icing. Use the icing to sandwich the biscuits together and leave until set firm.
