Its very simple and easy to make biscuits and you can modify this recipe to flavour your biscuits differently. I recommend purchasing a flat baking tray from Tesco for £2, as it cooks the biscuits better and they just slide off the tray once cooked.
6 oz plain flour
4 oz baking margarine (or butter)
2 oz of sugar. (white or brown)
Put the oven on 220 degrees C.
All I did was weigh out all the ingredients into the same bowl and added a few drops of Vanilla essence. I chopped the margarine into small bits. I then made bread crumbs of the whole lot, lifting the flour into the margarine and dropping down, rubbing them together with my fingers.
Once I have the bread crumbs I added a tablespoon of water so I could make the ingredients into a dough, this may not have been necessary if I had used butter.
I then sprinkled flour onto a cleaned work surface and rolled out the dough so it was about 5/10 mm thick. I then cut out with my pastry cutters to the required size.
I then placed each cut piece of pastry onto a baking tray. Place in the oven and cook to perfection.
Store in a air tight container.
All the best
