- 175g plain flour (I used a mix of whole wheat and white)
- 75g light muscovado sugar
- 100g butter
Preheat oven to 160 degrees C (325F). Grease two baking sheets.
Combine the flour and sugar in a bowl. Roughly chop the butter and rub in to the flour/sugar mixture until a soft dough starts to form.
Once mixture is coming together, knead it into a soft dough, pliable enough to roll out. (I needed to add a tiny bit more butter due to the heavier whole wheat flour I had used).
My son loved the 'rubbing in' and kneading. He has always liked getting his hands messy in play dough, paint, water, slime or any kind of 'messy play' so getting messy while baking was a lot of fun for him!
A perfect treat for a rainy afternoon! Lovely with a cup of tea for mummy and daddy too!
My son felt rather proud of himself for having made the biscuits almost entirely by himself and I am encouraged to find more things he can easily make - and not just sweet treats!
