Freezer Biscuits (by special request)

A friend asked me to post my recipe for biscuits she tried here a while ago. I can't remember which lot she had - one recipe is here, and the other is below.

Basic Refrigerator Biscuits
Makes 90-120

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
3 cups plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt

Mix first 5 ingredients together in a blender or by hand in a large bowl. Stir in last 3 ingredients & mix well. Or just throw it all together in your Thermomix.

Divide dough, roll into sausage shapes (diameter will depend on how big you like your bikkies), wrap in waxed paper or cling wrap & place in fridge (for at least 2 hours) or freezer.

To bake: Cut roll into thin slices & place on ungreased tray. Bake at 180-200 degrees C for 10 mins or until golden (depends on your oven - watch them as they will go from perfect to burnt quickly because of the sugar content). Allow to cool & harden slightly before removing from tray.

You can pretty much add anything you want to these - cocoa, nuts, choc chips, sprinkle cinnamon or 100s & 100s on top etc.
