  • 1 cup Confectioners' Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1-2 tbsp Milk or Water

  • Mix in the butter cubes and marmalade until mixture is crumbly.

  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead about 10 times, keep a little extra flour on hand should areas of the dough become too sticky to work with.
  • Use your hands to pat and mold the dough into an 8-10 inch circle.
  • Brush dough with the slightly beaten egg and dust with the remaining tbsp of sugar.
  • Use a large knife to cut into 8 wedges, or just score the circle.
