This fail-safe recipe for buttery biscuits is great for beginners or budding child chefs! Memorise the simple 1:2:3 ratio, ready for whenever you need a batch of biscuits, pronto
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.
