Dutch butter Biscuits

 For a quick fix for something to dip into your cuppa tea this afternoon we recommend a Dutch Butter Biscuit. If you have a food processor it’s alot easier but can be done by hand all the same, so all you need to make 600g batch is:

Ingredients

  • 100g Icing sugar
  • 200g Unsalted butter/salted butter if you like it like that
  • 300g Plain flour

Method

Just mix it to a dough, roll into a sausage and slice into 1cm thick coins :)
I bake them myself at 160 deg C till gently browned (normally 20 minutes), but 180 deg C for about 10 minutes is also fine (That way you get to dunk it into the tea faster ;0)
Oh, and if you prefer shapes, the dough can be rolled out and cut, filled or garnished

In these challenging times…
