Homemade Biscuits Quicker Than a Trip to the Shops!

Hi guys, I wanted to share another of my favourite simple recipes for biscuits (cookies for the Americans reading). This one takes less than 5 minutes of preparation, and 15 minutes cooking time, so it’s quicker than going to get some from your local shops! It also has that deliciousness and sense of achievement that comes from making it yourself at home, and you can experiment with different flavours.

Ingredients

  • Caster Sugar – 50 grams
  • Plain Flour – 150 grams
  • Butter/Spread – 100 grams
  • (optional) Chocolate chips – to taste

You don’t have to go out of your way to use butter – any spread will work. The flavour will differ a bit based on what you use, but all of them will make delicious biscuits! We use olive oil spread at home, so that’s what I use for baking.

Method

Firstly, soften the butter/spread. I recommend just putting it in the microwave for around 10 seconds, or over the stovetop if you prefer. It should be soft enough to stir, but shouldn’t be so melted as to start becoming transparent.

Preheat the oven to 160°C (320°F) and get your ingredients ready.

Next, mix all of the ingredients in the bowl. The mixture will stick a bit to your mixing spoon, so just use a second spoon to scrape it off occasionally.

I added chocolate chips to the recipe at this point. This is completely optional, they taste great without the chocolate as well! Alternatively, you can experiment with other additions.

Grab some of the mixture out and roll into balls around 3cm in diameter, then place onto a baking tray.

Flatten the balls out by pressing them with the bottom of a drinking glass or other flat surface. They should be around 1cm thick.

Then just throw them in the oven for 15 minutes. Once they come out, leave on a wire rack for a few minutes to cool.

They’re ready to eat – dig in!
