Step 1
Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt until smooth. With mixer on low speed, add flour and mix just until a dough forms.

Preheat oven to 165C. Remove dough from freezer.
Step 4
With a sharp knife, cut dough into 3mm thick slices, and place on a tray lined with baking paper. Allow room for spreading.
Step 5
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until edges are golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
Step 6
Combine extra butter with icing sugar, extra vanilla and salt. Beat on high and gradually add 2 teaspoons milk – continue to beat until light and fluffy.
Step 7
Pipe a line of filling onto half of the cooled shortbread biscuits, sandwich together with the remaining biscuits.
