Roll mixture into small balls and place on a cold greased or lined tray. Press with a fork dusted with flour.
Bake for 15 minutes until biscuits are firm but still pale. Cool on a wire rack .
Mix together butter, icing sugar and enough hot water to make a thick icing. Spread half of the cooled biscuits with icing and then sandwich together into pairs.
