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

  8. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the outside is hard, but the centre remains soft. (Do not over bake).
