This is a recipe for basic biscuits which can be adapted for most kinds of biscuits!!
The Double Choc Chip cookies are my favourite :)
i make the basic dough then use half for normal biscuits and half for choc chip cookies. It makes about 9 or 10 of each, so plenty!!

You Will Need

  • Step 1

    125g butter , softened
    70g caster sugar
    1 egg yolk
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    150g plain flour

  • Step 2

    Mix the butter and sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon, then add the egg yolk and vanilla and stir it in.

  • Step 3

    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.

  • Step 4

    Use cookie cutters to cut your biscuit shapes using half of the mixture.
    Leave a bit of space inbetween biscuits as they do expand in the oven.
    Bake in the oven at 180C/160C fan/Gas mark 4 for 12-15 minutes.

  • Step 5

    With the other half of the mix, add:
    25g Cocoa Powder
    White Chocolate Chips
    Milk Chocolate Chips
    and mix together.

  • Step 6

    Using your cookie cutter cut a heart shape and place on to your baking tray and flatten slightly, ammending your shape if it goes a bit wonky.
    Again, leave a bit of space inbetween biscuits as they do expand in the oven.
