How to make Miss Yarkan's Yummy Biscuits

Miss Yarkan's Yummy Biscuits



250g butter softened

150g caster sugar

1 egg

2 tsp of vanilla extract

300g plain flour


Step 1

Mix the butter and sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon. Then, add the egg and the vanilla extra and briefly beat to combine


Step 2

Add the flour and stir until the mixture is well combined - you might need to get your hands in at the end to give everything a really good mix and press the dough together.


Step 3 

Roll out the dough using a rolling pin and use your cutters to make different shapes.


Step 4

Put the biscuits onto a baking tray and bake in the oven for 20 minutes until they are lightly golden.


We hope you enjoy them :)
