Make these simple yet tasty biscuits this week. Enjoy with a steaming mug of tea, dunk into a hot chocolate, or my personal favourite – have as a snack, whenever!
- 125g unsalted butter
- 125g caster sugar
- 1 tsp of good quality vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp of golden syrup
- 1 medium free range egg
- 350 of plain (all purpose) flour
- 50g malted milk powder, such as Ovaltine or Horlicks
- 1/2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
- Preheat your oven to 180C/Fan 160C/Gas 4. Then line two large baking trays with grease proof paper - set aside. Then in a large bowl beat together the butter, sugar and vanilla.
- Next add the syrup and the egg to the mixture, and beat. Then add the flour, malted milk powder and bicarbonate of soda and mix thoroughly - it should all come together as one large ball. It is also worth noting that Ovaltine makes darker biscuits, whilst Horlicks makes lighter ones!
- Divide the dough into four equal parts (you can use a weighing scale to help, or just go by feel). Put one piece between two sheets of grease proof paper and using a rolling pin, roll the dough until you have the thickness of a pound coin.
- Remove the paper and cut into biscuit shape size rectangles.Use the edge of a sharp knife to flute the edges. Place in the baking tray, and repeat with the remaining dough, Bake for around 10-12 minutes then cool.
