Let's Bake: Easter Shortbread Biscuits

I have yet to meet a toddler who doesn't love to make biscuits!  If you make the mixture beforehand this is a fairly fail safe activity as it really only requires them to roll out the dough and cut out the shapes.




I have a really simple recipe for making biscuits that hasn't failed yet!


125g butter
175g plain flour
50g caster sugar
1 tablespoon of milk

Rub the butter, caster sugar and flour together in a big bowl until it looks like breadcrumbs.  Add a tablespoon of milk and knead for a couple of minutes until you have formed a smooth ball of dough.  Put in the fridge for half an hour.  Place on a floured surface and roll out the dough.  Cut out biscuit shapes using a biscuit cutter.  Place the biscuits on a baking tray and prick with a fork.  Bake at 180 degrees for 15 minutes.

NB: You may find you need more flour once you've added the milk as it can sometimes go too sticky.  

Easy peasy!  And here are our some biscuits we made for Easter:
