This biscuit dough is a fun mix which is ideal for rolling out and using cutters to create the biscuit of your choice.  Easy to make and fun to decorate.  Don't forget to freeze your leftover dough for another baking day!

Method

  1. Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until pale. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.

  3. Add the flour to the butter mix and mix until the dough is formed.  Wrap the biscuit dough in clingfilm and chill for at least one hour.

  4. Preheat the oven to 170°C (150°C fan, gas mark 3). Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to about 0.5cm.

  5. Cut out the biscuits and transfer to baking sheet. Roll up the trimmings and repeat stages above to make more biscuits. Bake for 8 – 12 minutes until golden.

  6. Remove and transfer to a cooling wire and leave until completely cool before decorating.

    I really love this recipe. The cookies turn out nicely and taste really good. My only critique is that once they set, they go a little bit hard. Other than that, its great!

    Great recipe although might need to be cooked a bit longer to throughly bake the biscuit. I did it for 12 minutes and it was a little too soft on in the middle.
