Jane’s Biscuits

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 ….


  • 175 g Plain Flour

  • 110 g soft Butter

  • 50 g Sugar


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 180c/350f/gas 4.

  • 2.

    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!!!

  • 3.

    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.

  • 4.

    Take out,and cool on a wire rack.

  • 5.

    NOTE: This is such a versatile biscuit recipe, add ground cinnamon for cinnamon biscuits, ground ginger….,lemon rind…etc.etc..

  • 6.

    Children love experimenting with these, xmas tree shapes, pigs, cows,etc…………..

  • 7.

    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.
