I like to think so!
As I can´t go out too much nowadays (Motheritus) I´ve decided to bake something really scrumcious every Sunday and serve up afternoon tea. Here´s my first try at all butter biscuits:
I got to use my heart shaped cutter which I´m using for everything at the moment.
….So I thought I should throw in a few other shapes to even it out 🙂
They came out really well, which rather surprised me.
If you want to try them, this is what you´ll need:
250g of unsalted butter
140g of sugar
300 g of plain flour
1 egg yolk
2 tps of Vanilla extract
Choc chips, jam, and icing sugar and a lemon for the lemony ones
What to do:
Mix up the sugar and butter – with hands
Add sieved flour and egg yolk – first with a wooden spoon, then your hands.
Roll it into a massive ball, cover with cling film and throw in the fridge for 30mins
For plain ones: Roll out and make shapes and pop in a pre heated over at 180!
After 15 mins, take out, cool, eat.
For the icing sugar variation: mix 140g of Icing sugar with 4 tlsp of lemon and add zest. Dip the cooled biscuits, dry and eat!
For the choc chip version: Add choc chip bits to the outside and roll out.
Delicious with tea, which happens to be my favorite drink!
