Today I would like to share with you a recipe from my Mum – I am quite sure she did not invent the recipe but in my mind it may as well be hers! These cookies were a constant when I was growing up – the go to cookie recipe for any occasion and they are so so tasty.
They are crispy, buttery, sugary and great with either sultanas or chocolate chips. A really basic recipe that takes no time to whip up.
I rarely will use a fork to press into biscuits these days, preferring the more smooth cookie style, but you just have to include that step here to create that classic finish.
The ingredients are just a few pantry basics

Plain White Flour
Sultanas or Chocolate Chips
These biscuits are so easy to make, you will need a food mixer or an electric hand held beater as you need to cream together the first few ingredients.
Once the sugar, butter and vanilla are creamed together, I add in the eggs and blend well then add in the flour, baking powder and either sultanas or chocolate chips. Then stir to combine.
I like to roll these into small balls, around a tablespoon, then press with a damp fork to create that classic biscuit shape. They take around 15 minutes to bake depending on your oven, they are done when they are lightly golden at the edges.
The biscuits will be soft when you get them out of the oven the firm to crispy upon standing. I think you will love them!

Onto the recipe
Easy as that! Store in an airtight container and they last well – if you don’t eat them all that is!
I hope you enjoy this quick tasty biscuit recipe from my family to yours.
