Hello everyone, I hope your day is going well. I was looking for something simple to make and I found this recipe, originally from Mary Berry. I love a basic recipe that’s easy to make, and this one only has 3 ingredients!! All you need is butter, sugar and self-raising flour, once baked they are soft, light and not too sweet.
Fork Biscuits (makes 16)
50g caster sugar
150g self-raising flour
Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
Beat the butter alone until soft then mix in the sugar. Add the flour and mix until it forms a dough (you can use your hands for this part).
Form the dough into a long log shape and use a knife to cut 16 equal biscuits.
Take each piece of dough, flatten in your hand to make a circle and place on the baking tray.
When you are finished, press a fork into each one and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Leave to cool on a baking tray.
Let me know if you try this recipe in the comments below.
Hello everyone I hope you are all well. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Today’s recipe is probably one of the best cookies you’ll ever make (in my opinion). They are soft, sweet and chewy…. just perfect. I really liked these cookies because they contain peanut butter, which I love and also there is no flour in the recipe which makes a change. I’ve had this recipe written in my book for many years and I don’t actually remember where I got it from but finally I’ve made them. The recipe only makes 9 cookies so you may want to double it, however they are quite indulgent.
Peanut Butter and Oat Cookies (makes 9)
100g smooth/crunch peanut butter
100g soft brown sugar
100g porridge oats
1 pinch of salt
1 tsp baking powder
30g chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line 2 trays with baking paper.
Put the peanut butter, sugar and egg into a bowl and mix together with a spoon.
Next, add all the other ingredients and mix well with a spoon until everything is combined (you might want to use your hands for this).
Then roll the mixture into 9 even balls and flatten down on the tray.
Bake them in the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden but still soft and leave to cool on the tray.
I loved the lemon butter biscuits so much that I had to try them flavoured with orange zest! You could also try other fruits too like grapefruit, banana or strawberry by adding 30g – 40g of fruit to the mixture. With this recipe I added some food colouring to add a more orangey tone to the biscuits 😀
120g unsalted butter
100g caster sugar
1 large egg
1 large orange
200g plain flour
1/3 baking powder
1. Beat the butter and sugar together until creamy, then add the egg and continue beating until its light and fluffy.
2. Finely zest the orange into the bowl, then add the plain flour and baking powder. Give it a big mix.
3. It will look a bit like a cake mixture now, use a heaped teaspoon to put the biscuits onto the baking tray and finally bake in the oven for 20 minutes until brown and golden.
