Fathers Day Cookies! | Biscuit Recipe

Friday, 26 June 2015

So last weekend was Fathers Day in the UK and I've decided to upload a recipe for the cookies/biscuits I made my Dad. Now, my Dad is simply pleased and loves these cookies, but some might find them a bit plain and you are welcome to make your own modifications to the recipe! 

This makes about 30 - 40 small cookies.

Here's what we will be making!


I found this recipe online and have used the instructions that follow:

BISCUITS 

INGREDIENTS 

  • 500g of Plain Flour
  • 250g of Butter or Margarine
  • 140g of Icing Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon of Milk

MAKE SURE YOU PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 160 DEGREES BEFORE HAND!

METHOD

Once you have measured all of your ingredients out, place the flour, butter/margarine and sugar into a bowl then start rubbing all the ingredients into each other so you get a breadcrumb-like texture.


Next, add your vanilla extract and milk to get a doughy like consistency. Add more milk or flour if needed as I found that my mixture was a bit runny and sticky! 


BEFORE PUTTING YOUR DOUGH ONTO A WORK SURFACE, DUST IT WITH FLOUR OTHERWISE IT WILL STICK! Once you have a good enough consistency, (and a dusting of flour) roll out your dough onto a clean work-surface. You can have your cookies as thick as you like, I did mine at about 1cm in thickness.


Then you can now cut out your cookies/biscuits in whatever shape you want! I used this flower-like shape.


Once you have cut out all of your cookies, place then on a tray that's lined with baking parchment, we don't want them sticking to the tray! I had some leftover dough, so I stuck little balls on the top of the cookies; they look more like flowers now!


After you have placed all of your cookies on a lined tray, place them in the over for about 15-20 min, but make sure you keep an eye on them as I found that they brown quite quickly! I waiting until my cookies had a nice browness about them before I took them out. After you have baked your cookies, leave them to cool own for about 10 minutes.


As a finishing touch, I added some icing to my little cookies to give them a nicer look, but they taste fine as hey are, plain but good :) You can add any toppings you like, you could even add fruit or sprinkles! Below is my end result!


I hope you guys have enjoyed this recipe and let me know if you have had a go at making them! 

Love, K :)
