  1. Step 1:

    Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl and set aside.

  2. Step 2:

    In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until pale. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.

  3. Step 3:

    Add the flour ingredient to the butter mixture and mix until the dough is formed. Wrap the biscuit dough in clingfilm and chill for at least one hour.

  4. Step 4:

    Preheat the oven to 170°c (150°c fan, gas mark 3) Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to about 0.5cm

  5. Step 5:

    Cut the biscuits to 1 inch squares and transfer to a baking tray. Roll out the trimmings and repeat to make more biscuits.

  6. Step 6:

    Bake the biscuits for 8-12 minutes until golden. Once baked leave on the baking tray for a couple of minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool before decorating.

  7. Step 7:

    To decorate roll out and cut squares of white sugar paste icing and stick to each biscuit using boiled apricot jam. Alternatively, you could flood the biscuits with white icing and allow to set before adding the letters and numbers.

  8. Step 8:

    Draw on the letters and numbers using an edible pen or alternatively, pipe using black writing icing.
