   Recipe by: AUSTRALIAN VOGUE
       Beat the butter until light and creamy.  Add the icing sugar and beat
   until combined.  Add the cornflour, plain flour and vanilla, and mix at
   slow speed until just amalgamated. For firmer biscuits, add extra flour at
   this stage. Lightly butter and flour a baking tray and preheat the oven to
   160'C.
      Make a ball from a level dessertspoon of the mixture and place on the
   tray, allowing room for the biscuits to spread. Repeat with the remaining
   mixture.  Dip a fork into some flour, knocking off any excess and make an
   imprint with the tines, flattening the biscuits a little. (Alternatively,
   the biscuits can be make by spooning the mixture directly onto the tray.)
   Place the tray on the centre shelf of the oven and bake slowly until the
   biscuits are just coloured, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven with a
   spatula and place the biscuits on a cake rack.
   
       To make the icing: beat the butter with a wooden spoon.
    Add the icing sugar and beat until the sugar is almost absorbed into the
   butter. Add the vanilla and salt and with the addition of a little boiling
   water, bring to a thick and creamy consistency, balancing with a little
   more icing sugar if necessary.
       To Finish the biscuits: join two biscuits together with a teaspoon of
   icing spread with a knife.  Return to a cooling rack until the icing is
   completely set before removing to an airtight container. Sue
