Method

  1. Step 1:

    Mix together the butter and sugar, then add the egg yolks and vanilla extract. Beat the ingredients until incorporated.

  2. Step 2:

    Add the flour and using a wooden spoon bring the mixture together until it forms a dough (you may want to use your hands to make it easier).

  4. Step 4:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, gas mark 4).

    Brush the biscuit with warm apricot jam and cover with the sugar paste.

  10. Step 10:
