Old Fashioned Butter Biscuits

Light as air first bite gives way to melt to the roof of your mouth buttery smoothness,

Sometimes you just gotta go old school!


Baking bikkies with my Mini Me is just one of those simple pleasures in life that are what memories are made of, you know?! I just adore it when we’ve donned our aprons, are covered in flour & her delicious wee giggle is filling the kitchen with joyous bliss.

Bung into the bowl of your mixer 125g of softened butter, 1/2 cup of caster sugar & 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla paste. Mix until it’s pale & creamy before cracking in an egg & continuing to mix until it’s well combined.

Next, throw in 2 cups of plain flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder & 1 tablespoon of milk. Mix until it forms a nice soft dough.

Pinch bits of the dough out with your fingers & roll into wee balls before placing on a baking paper lined tray. When all the balls are done, very gently press a fork to just flatten each top.

Whack those into a 180c oven for 15 minutes.

Allow the biscuits to cool on the trays, then dust them in icing sugar before devouring greedily!

  1. Old fashioned recipes are the best. One of my favourite things to do is stroll through second hand shops for super old recipe books. They are so simple, yet so satisfying. And it doesn’t get better than good old butter biscuits! Its so good you bake with your little one. Time together doesn’t have to be expensive or extravagant. My favourite memories are of baking with my mum.

    1. I must also admit that a good deal of my cookbooks are from my Nan’s era 😊 Coming from a very small blink in the cow paddocks & you’ll miss it country town, I also have a lot of the local A4 paper recipe collection booklets that the ladies used to sell at fete’s & the general stalls you’d see set up about the place – there is always some fabuliciouz fodder to be found in those!
