These biscuits are perfectly lovely plain, and equally scrumptious with additions like cinnamon or chocolate chips - or, let the kids loose with icing and sprinkles to decorate.


  • 100g caster sugar

  • 200g butter, softened

  • 300g plain flour


1. Combine the butter and sugar in a bowl until smooth and then add the flour until the mixture forms a ball. Wrap the dough in cling film and leave to rest in the fridge for an hour.

2. Meanwhile, pre-heat the oven to 180° and lightly grease a baking tray. Roll out your dough on a floured surface until ½ cm deep. Pick your favourite cutters and go to town until you have no dough left.

3. Bake for approx 10 mins - until golden. Leave to cool on a baking rack.

4. Decorate as you wish.

5. Enjoy!
