Simple Shortbread Biscuits

If you read my cupcake post here, then you will know I don't have a lot of skill in the baking department and by that I mean its non existing but I am determined on improving. Which is slightly ironic as I was the only one in my family who didn't watch the bake off. However despite my non existing baking skills,  I am always very lucky with my biscuits. Which usually results in a batch be devoured very quickly indeed. In my opinion the best way to enjoy them is with a hot chocolate and a good book/film. 

250g of Butter 
110g Caster Sugar, plus a little extra to sprinkle on top
360g Plain Flour 
1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract 
1 tbsp of Milk 


  1. Heat the oven to Gas 5
  2. Beat the butter and the sugar together until smooth. 
  3. Add the Milk and the Vanilla Extract. 
  4. Stir in the flour until a dough forms, add more flour if necessary .  
  5. Roll out until the paste is 1cm thick or however thick you would like your biscuits to be
  6. Cut into any shape that takes your fancy and place onto a baking tray. Sprinkle with caster sugar and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  7. Once chilled bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. 
  8. Set aside to cool on a wire rack.
  9. Makes a fair few, but they are delicious and will be devoured. 


  1. Whenever I try and make biscuits or cookies they just NEVER come out well! Yours look so good though, tempted to give it a go!
