Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Beat butter, icing sugar and egg yolks until thick and creamy, then add vanilla and the cake flour and beat until the mixture forms a dough.

Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface to a thickness of 5 mm and cut into shapes. Prick biscuits with a fork and sprinkle with castor sugar.
Place on a tray and bake for 13 – 15 mins until golden brown OR allow biscuits to cool and dust with icing sugar.
