1. Put the butter or margarine and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and mix until creamy.

2. Add the egg and vanilla essence and mix until well combined.

3. Add the rest of the ingredients except the extra flour and mix lightly. Shape the dough into a ball, cover in clingfilm and chill for at least 30 minutes.

4. Generously sprinkle flour on a work surface and roll out the dough to 3mm thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut shapes of your choice. Arrange the shapes slightly apart on the prepared baking sheets.

5. To finish: Push a sliver of glacé cherry (if using) onto the middle of each biscuit. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

6. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, then store in an airtight container.
