123 Biscuits


This is one of those really simple, quick and easy recipes when you need to bake something without much preparation, and definitely without a shopping trip. It’s very easy to double, triple and so on, because it’s one of those proportional recipes: 1 part caster sugar to 2 parts butter to 3 parts self-raising flour. Easy.

Ingredients (for 15 biscuits)

  • 50g caster sugar
  • 100g butter or margarine
  • 150g self-raising flour


  1. Preheat the oven to 160C. Line two baking trays with parchment.
  2. Place the butter in a mixing bowl and beat to soften. Add the sugar and beat well.
  3. Add the flour and beat until you have a fairly dry dough.
  4. Roll pieces of the dough into balls around the size of a walnut and place on the baking trays.
  5. Wet a fork and press down on each biscuit to flatten it.
  6. Bake in the oven for around 18 minutes until pale golden.
