3. Slowly beat in the egg and vanilla essence until well combined.
4. Shift the flour, milk powder, custard powder and salt together.

Hi Adeline,

You had over handle the dough and the butter started to melt. What you can do is wrap the dough in a plastic bag and chill it in the fridge for half an hour then roll it out on a lightly floured surface.
