3. Now take what you made in Step 2 and mix in the egg and vanilla essence.
4. Next, sift in the flour and baking powder.
5. Once it's roughly been mixed together, mix in the barley flour.
6. Form the dough into round shapes an arrange them on parchment paper (leave plenty of space in between because they will expand).
