This recipe is from Delia's Cakes
Begin by heating the butter in a small saucepan very gently, then, when it’s melted, remove it from the heat and leave it to cool a little before stirring in the beaten egg.
Now measure the rest of the ingredients into a bowl, pour in the egg-and-butter mixture and stir to a stiff paste.
Form the paste into little balls, about the size of a walnut, and place them on greased baking sheets, giving them enough room to spread slightly during the baking, then press them down a little.
Bake (one sheet at a time) near the centre of the oven for about 16–18 minutes, by which time the biscuits should feel fairly firm in the centre.
Leave them to cool a little on the baking sheets then remove them to a cooling rack.
Store in an airtight tin.
