Preheat oven to 160º C.

Grease or paper-line a scone tray (27 x 37 cm).

In a medium sized bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Sift icing sugar over butter, add vanilla and beat well.

In a sturdy plastic bag, mix flours together. Sift over butter mix and fold in to make a stiff paste.

Roll teaspoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on tray (approximately 20 per tray), allowing a little room for spreading.

Flatten the biscuits with the back of a fork making a criss-cross pattern.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until slightly browned.

Allow to cool on tray before moving to wire rack.
