Plain and simply the best. Children can (and do) bake (and eat) these biscuits.

2 oz sugar

4 oz butter

6 oz flour


Stir flour and sugar to mix, then grate butter into the dry ingredients.

Knead until dough sticks together, forming a ball.  Patience makes better biscuits but a SMALL splash of boiling water may help.

Roll out to desired thickness (around 1/8th inch) and cut out your favourite shapes.

Bake at Gas Mark 4 (180C/350F) for about 10 minutes, removing them from the oven just as they turn golden (before they turn brown).

Leave on tray for a couple of minutes to set and then carefully transfer to a wire rack until cold.

Store in an airtight tin.
