Last night I had a craving for some biscuits, but with none in the house and all the ingrediants for shortbread, I whipped together these easy biccies. It takes about 10 minutes to prep, then 20 minutes to bake, so all in all, well worth the wait.

You will need
Shortbread -
125g - butter/marg
55g - caster sugar
180g - plain flour
1 tea spoon - vanilla essence
Jam (of your choice)

This will make 10-12 biscuits. Double up the ingrediants to make these double biscuits.

So let's go...

1. Start by mixing your butter and sugar together (here's a cheats trick, I put my butter in the microwave for about 20 secs to get it nice and soft, it makes it much easier to mix)
2. Then sift in your flour and mix together. Then mix in the vanilla essence.
3. You can start with a spoon, but then start to use your hands and knead the mixture together (if you need help kneading, click here for instructions) You can use extra flour to help.
4. Once your mixture is not sticky, you are ready to go
5. Sprinkle flour over a smooth surface, and roll out until the mixture is 1cm thick
6. You can now use your shapes to make whatever shapes you want. Or use a knife to make your own
(to make double biscuits, cut a shape out of half of the biscuits to make the hole)
7. Once done, place in the fridge for 20 minutes and pre heat your over to 180 degrees
8. Bake for 15-20 until golden brown
9. Leave to cool
10. Eat them as you may, or double them up and add jam.
