- In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar by hand or with an electric mixer on medium speed, until well mixed.
- Add the egg and vanilla essence, beat until light and smooth, scraping down the sides to ensure all ingredients are mixed well.
- Slowly stir in the dry mixture by hand or mixer on low speed, until a crumbly mixture is formed.
- Shape a level tablespoon of dough into a 7cm (3½ inch) log and bend the log to form a crescent shape.
- Repeat with remaining dough until finished.
