sprinkle bikkies

Sprinkle Bikkies!

This morning I've made some simple biscuits using this basic changeable biscuit recipe from here.


Serves: 20 

  • Basic biscuit
  • 125g softened butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 egg
  • splash of milk


Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Extra time:2min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Mix the butter and sugar until you get a soft creamy mixture.
  3. Add the salt and mix; add the egg and mix.
  4. Add the flour 1/2 cup at a time, and mix with each addition.
  5. Add splash of milk if needed and mix.
  6. Knead the dough until it is not messy and is supple, then roll it out until about 5mm or so thick. The thickness doesn't really matter - 10mm thick if you want - the biscuit will expand a lot.
  7. Cut using a cookie cutter shape to suit yourself.
  8. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes – for a lesser time for a nice soft biscuit, longer time for a harder biscuit - just keep an eye on them.
  9. Changes and Variations

  10. For a sweet biscuit, add a tablespoon of hundreds and thousands to the mix.

As easy as that! :D
