Fork biscuits

 

 

Here is the recipe of the biscuits we have been making in class.

 

Ingredients

100g softened butter

50g caster sugar

150g self-raising flour

Butter for lining trays

 

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C /fan 160°C/ gas 4. Lightly butter two baking trays.

Measure the butter into a bowl and beat to soften. Gradually beat in the sugar and then the flour. Bring the mixture together with your hands to form a dough.   Form the dough into 16 balls about the size of a walnut and place spaced well apart on the prepared baking trays. Dip a fork in a little water and use this to flatten the biscuits.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15–20 minutes until a very pale golden. Lift off the baking tray and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
