AND they are quick to make: just plonk all the ingredients into a mixing bowl, and mix!
I prefer to mix this dough in a mixer with an all-purpose attachment in my mixer rather than mixing the butter in with my fingertips. When I have mixed it in my mixer, the baked biscuits are light and shortbread-y.
(This batch was mixed by hand, and although super nice, were a bit more dense!)
SO this is how it goes: roll them into little balls and place on a lightly greased baking tray.
Press down with a fork to make chucky looking biscuits.
Pop into the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
It's that easy!
So as I mentioned, these tend to be my edible gifts....Happy Birthday Hayley! This post was inspired by you! I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday, and hope the year ahead holds many special things for you!
And I hope you enjoyed your custard creams!xxx
