This simple recipe for a basic biscuit dough can be adapted to suit your tastes – experiment with different shapes and flavours, from lemon fingers to chocolate cookies




    • STEP 1

      Mix the butter and sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon, then add the egg yolk and vanilla extract and briefly beat to combine.

    • STEP 2

      Sift over the flour and stir until the mixture is well combined – you might need to get your hands in at the end to give everything a really good mix and press the dough together. Chill for 20-30 mins.

    • STEP 3

      For basic vanilla biscuits: Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Chill the dough for 20 - 30minutes, roll out and cut out shapes as above. Bake on a non-stick baking tray for 10-12 minutes until pale golden. Carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool and crisp up.
