Basic Butter Biscuits

125 g butter, softened
½ cup caster sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon milk

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease baking trays.
Beat butter, sugar and vanilla in small bowl until pale and creamy. Add egg and mix until well combined. Sift flour and baking powder over butter mixture. Add milk and stir until just combined.

Using 1 heaped tablespoon of mixture at a time roll mixture into balls and place on greased trays, flatten biscuits slightly.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, and bake until light golden. Allow biscuits to cool on trays for 5 minutes and transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

This biscuit mix can make a variety of biscuits by adding in preferred ingredients to make biscuits like jam drops, chocolate chips, peanut butter, and so on from one batch.

I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.


  1. These biscuits make me want to sit right down now and have a cuppa.
