These are incredibly simple gorgeous biscuits, do make sure the butter is nice and soft. I always have this recipe in my head in Imperial measurements as it is just 2 , 4 , 6 ….
Preheat the oven to 180c/350f/gas 4.
Put the flour into a mixing bowl, rub in the soft butter, add the caster sugar and bring the whole mixture together to form a stiff dough. Do not add any water!!!
Roll the dough out to about 1/ 2 cm thickness and cut into shapes, place carefully on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 6-10mins, or until pale golden.
Take out,and cool on a wire rack.
NOTE: This is such a versatile biscuit recipe, add ground cinnamon for cinnamon biscuits, ground ginger….,lemon rind…etc.etc..
Children love experimenting with these, xmas tree shapes, pigs, cows,etc…………..
Of course this can be made in a food processor too, just stop the machine as soon as it comes together, otherwise it will toughen.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
