  1. Preheat the oven 170C/150C Fan/Gas 3. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

  2. Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolk until well combined.

  5. Remove the biscuits from the oven, brush with the egg white, sprinkle with sugar and return to the oven for 5–10 minutes, or until pale golden brown.

  6. Remove the biscuits from the tray and set aside to cool on a wire rack.
