Basic Biscuit Recipe - great for decorating funny faces

This is one of my favourite recipes that my children and I have fun cooking & decorating together. If I want the faces to look perfect, I’ll do them myself but most of the fun comes in seeing what the kids themselves create. They also make a great (& inexpensive) party favour for little ones, a fun birthday party activity (have the biscuits made and have kids decorate them they way they like) or special school holiday/weekend fun.

¾ cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 ½ cups plain flour
