Recipe for Biscuits
Oven Temperature 350ºF 180ºC Gas Mark 4
100g (4oz) butter or margarine
100g (4oz) caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
200g (8oz) plain flour
Grease 2 baking trays. Cream the butter or margarine and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the egg a little at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in the flour (and spice) and mix to a fairly firm dough. Knead lightly and roll out 0.5cm (¼ inch) thick on a floured board. Use dove biscuit cutters to cut shapes out. Lift onto the greased trays and bake in the top of the oven for 15-20 minutes until firm and very lightly browned. Leave on the trays to cool for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks. Ice with white glace icing.
This makes about 25 biscuits.
