These simple biscuits were always made on new year’s eve at about 9 pm when it was boring to stay awake waiting for the midnight bells.
They can of course be made anytime and upon demand I baked a batch last week!
They are very easy and quick to make!
Ingredients: for about 50
380g plain flour (about 3 cups)
2tbsp baking powder
140 g butter (about 1 cup)
200g sugar (about 1 cup)
How to: Use beaters to cream the butter and sugar together, then add the vanilla and egg. Combine the flour with the baking powder and gradually beat into the butter mixture until the dough is very stiff. Divide the dough into quarters to make cutting out easier. Taking a quarter at a time, use a rolling-pin to flatten the dough to about 1/2cm thick. Use cookie cutters to cut out the biscuits and lay them on grease proof paper lined baking trays. Bake for about 8 – 10 mins at 180°c until golden. Remove from oven, leave to cool and decorate or leave nude!
Enjoy with a cuppa 🙂
