I was in the mood to bake – but didn’t have a lot of time so a couple of batches of biscuits seemed like a good idea. It really is quick to bake biscuits and who doesn’t love a homemade biscuit with a cup of tea or coffee?
First up the family favourite Chocolate Chip cookies. Usually I use a cookie dough scoop however mine has broken – 1 tablespoon of mix rolled and then flattened with a fork and voila! 🙂 each cookie looks slightly different but thats baking isn’t it? Not perfect but still yummy. While they were baking I mixed up the next batch.
I grabbed my Edmonds Cookery Book and headed for the Vanilla Biscuit recipe. As you can see from the picture this recipe has been one of my go-to’s ever since I a) got the book and b) started baking.
- 125g butter
- 225g sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla paste, or essence
- 1 egg
- 225g flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 50g sultanas
Cream the butter and sugar with vanilla paste or essence. Add the egg and stir through. Mix in the dry ingredients.
Roll into balls – tablespoons – and flatten with a fork on a prepared tray. bake for 15-20 minutes at 190°c.
Now isn’t that the most simplest recipe you have ever read? Now give it a go and perhaps it will become one of your go-to’s as well!
Happy baking xx
