I have no idea where this recipe came from, but it's been in my family for a very long time ... I like to think of it being handed down from generation to generation.
These biscuit are super easy to make and you really can adapt them to add any flavour you'd like.
My family love them, hope yours will too ...
8 oz Margarine, 2 1/2 oz Caster Sugar, 10 oz of Self Raising Flour.
First cream the margerine and sugar together. Then add the 10 oz of self raising flour. Mix all the ingredients together to form a dough.
Grease and lightly flour a baking tray.
Divide and roll the dough into small balls (I guess about 4cm each) and place evenly spaced on your tray.
Lightly flour a fork and press the balls of dough flat.
Bake until golden brown and firmish to the touch. Apporoximately 15 minutes in a pre heated oven, at 180c.
When ready, remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack to cool.
You can add any flavour you like, depending on your taste. I sometimes substitute some of the margarine for peanut butter, or some of the flour for hot chocolate powder.
My absolute favourite, grated orange rind and chocolate chips ... so good.
Whatever you choose, have fun ...
and ENJOY ... 😉 X
