Traffic Light Biscuits

These super cute Traffic Light Biscuits are so easy to make.

125g unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups plain flour
14 each green, orange and red Lifesaver lollies

1. Place butter and sugar in a small bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and extract. Beat until combined. Transfer mixture to a large bowl.
2. Add flour to butter mixture. Using your hand, mix to form a smooth dough. Turn dough out and shape into a rectangle. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
3. Roll dough between two sheets of baking paper to form a 20cm x 28cm rectangle. Cut dough into 14 x 4cm wide by 10cm long fingers. Using a 2.5cm round cutter, cut out three holes down the centre of each finger. Place fingers, 3cm apart, on two oven trays lined with baking paper.
4. Cook, one tray at a time, in a moderate oven (180C) for about 10 minutes, or until lightly golden. Place one green, orange and red Lifesaver lolly in holes of each biscuit. Return to oven. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until lollies have melted. Remove and cool on trays.
