    Every Day Biscuits - Make and bake, or make and freeze, then bake

    Yield: between 45 - 50
    Gas 5/190C/ 375F

    Metric Imperial
    225g 1/2 lb butter, softened
    100g 4oz caster sugar
    225g 1/2lb SF Flour
    5ml 1 tsp vanilla essence
    To finish: sprinkle of icing sugar

    Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, add vanilla and fold in the flour
    Mix to a smooth dough
    Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for a minute or two. Roll into a sausage shape approx 5cm/ 2in in diameter, put in fridge to chill until firm.

    To Freeze: Wrap in foil, pack in a freezer bag. Seal, label and freeze.
    To Thaw and Serve: Thaw in the wrappings in the fridge for approx 30 mins, then cut into thin (ish) slices, place on greased baking sheets and bake in a preheated oven for 10mins.
    Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool. Sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.

    Variations:
    Chocolate: Sub 25g / 1oz cocoa powder for the vanilla.
    Cherry: Add 50g / 2 oz glace cherries, finely chopped
    Nut: Add 50g/2oz chopped almonds or walnuts.

    Notes:
    These take moments to prep. I make one batch and cut the 'sausage' in half before chilling. Once chilled to firm, one half is then put in the freezer.
    The "dough" will keep in the fridge for a few days, so you can "slice" fresh biscuits as and when required.


    These are so handy for packed lunches for school,i dont give chloe processed food or sweets etc (I know I am horrible!) so these are so tasty.


    Char can we have a recipe/food board
