You will need to preheat the oven gas mark 5 or 190c


4oz butter you can use dairy-free instead if you like.

2oz sugar

Making the biscuits 

Beat the butter and sugar together until creamy, takes a little time, get the children to help.

Stir in the flour, then with your hand gently squeeze the mixture together to form a soft dough.

Gently roll out the dough on a floured work surface.

Roll out to ¼ thick and cut into any shapes with cutters of children’s choice or using a knife into finger slices. Poke some dots on the top using a fork.

Place on a baking tray.

You can sprinkle each biscuit with a little sugar before placing in the oven.

And that’s it! The biscuits go perfect with a nice tea or coffee.
