Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Author: Baking with Granny


  • 115 g Caster Sugar
  • 115 g Butter at room temperature
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 60 g Walnuts roughly chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 155 g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 tsp Cornflour


  • Pre-heat your oven to 180°c (or 160°c for a fan-assisted oven). Line a couple of trays with some grease-proof paper.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
  • Add the egg yolk, walnuts and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Gradually add the flour and cornflour to the mixture, a little at a time, mixing until it forms a soft dough.
  • Roll a small amount of dough into balls (between a teaspoon and tablespoon is ideal, depending on how big you want your biscuits to be) and place onto your pre-lined baking trays with a bit of space between them.
  • Flatten each ball a little with your fingers. Bake for 15 minutes until golden.
  • Leave on trays until cool enough to touch before transferring to a wire wrack to cool completely.
