Good basic biscuit recipe

(8 Posts)

My 2yr old enjoys making biscuits that we can cut up (i.e. use cutters rather than just drop mixture like you do when making cookies). I've tried a few recipes but none which seems to have a good combination of taste and ease of cutting/rolling

Shortbread stars or cheese stars

4oz butter
4oz plain flour
2oz cornflour
2oz icing sugar (or Parmesan)
Add seasoning for cheese ones

Mix it all together - takes a while to come together into a ball
Roll out to pound coin width cut out into stars or hearts and bake at 180 for 12-15 mins til pale gold colour.

Sprinkle with sugar while hot if you make the shortbread version

Keep for ages too if they get the chance!

Makes a shit load, but I usually halve the recipe.
Enjoy.
