Start with 2 sticks softened butter and 1 cup sugar. The recipe says caster or super fine sugar works best. I did not find any so I used regular. You can put the regular sugar in the food processor and make it fine if you want to take the time.
Beat until fluffy.
Add 1 eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat well.
The coal out of the oven. I was wondering while I was making these if I left them in the oven long enough would they turn into diamonds?
