Cookie or Cupcake?

Okay this is really a cookie in a cupcake case. It is a very simple recipe with a little bit easy piping and very yummy results. Few ingredients and quick too. Here is the recipe:

Swiss Shortcake

2 oz butter
6 oz caster sugar
6 oz plain flour
1/2 tsp of vanilla essence
2 tsp milk

It is this easy! pre-heat oven to 160 c gas 3 and prepare 12 cupcake cases into a tin. Cream butter and sugar together add vanilla and mix in flour. Add milk and give a final good mix, I finished with the electric mixer. Using a large star piping nossel pipe in a circular shape into cupcake cases and bake for 30-35 minutes (till pale golden and firm). Allow to cool and dust with icing, adding a blob of jam to the centre of each. Very traditional recipe, very easy and most important very nice! I will definitely make these again.
