  • In another bowl, cream together butter, sugar and vanilla essence.
  • Add milk and beat until combined.

  • Add milk by table spoons if needed. You need a crumbly dough, not a soft one.
  • Take the dough between parchment sheets and roll it into a thin disc.

  • With the help of a smaller cookie cutter, make a concentric circle inside the cut egde.

  • Store in airtight jar and enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea.
