Yummy Butter Biscuits

I’ve been looking for a quick and tasty biscuit recipe for a really long time – and this one is pretty much the best tasting butter cookie I’ve ever tried!

It’s just slightly easier than my other favourite Simple Butter Cookie Recipe.

This one is also not too sweet. It has a lovely buttery shortbread flavour. Still firm enough to give a delicious crunch. Keeps well. Easy recipe portions. Strong enough to throw into the kid’s lunchbox. Quick enough to whip up in 30 minutes. Easy enough for the kids to cut.

My only complaint is that when rolling and cutting, the dough is a bit brittle, and you have to be a little careful. Yeah, I’m that lazy! Would be tonnes simpler and quicker if we made circle-shaped biscuits!

Butter Biscuit Recipe

125g of softened butter
½ cup of caster sugar
1 egg
2 cups of flour

Beat butter with electric mixer. Add sugar and mix until fluffy. Add egg, mix. Sift flour, combine with mixer, then make into a ball with your fingers. Throw into fridge for 10 minutes while you clean up. Roll flat to 1cm or less. Cut biscuits, line up on baking paper. Into 190C oven for 10-15 minutes, until golden colour. Cool on a wire rack.
