Prep Time
15-20 minutes
Cooking/Baking Time
15-20 minutes

6 oz. plain flour + 1 tbsp, sifted (plus extra)

3 oz. caster sugar

¼ tsp. salt

4 oz. unsalted butter, chilled

1 tbsp. granulated sugar

  1. Grease and line 2 baking sheets with greaseproof paper.
  2. Mix the flour, sugar and salt together, then add to a food processor that has been fitted with a blade attachment.
  3. Cut the butter into cubes and add to the food processor. Blitz the ingredients on a high speed until the ingredients start to come together. (Alternatively, rub the butter into the flour mixture with your fingertips and then bring together).
  4. Tip the mixture on to a flat surface and bring together to form a dough. Turn on to a lightly floured surface and gently roll out until the paste is 1cm (or ½ in) thick. Cut into rounds and place onto the baking sheets with 1 inch space between each cookie. Re-roll the off cuts and cut out more shapes. Chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  5. In the meantime, preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  6. After 20 minutes, remove the biscuits from the fridge and lightly sprinkle on top the granulated sugar. Bake the biscuits for 15-20 minutes or until pale golden.
  7. Once baked, remove from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes. Using a spatula, gently transfer the cookies to a wired rack to cool completely.
  8. Enjoy with a delightful cup of tea!
