Line 2 baking trays with parchment and pre-heat the oven.
Put the butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and beat with electric beaters until light and fluffy or do this in a food processor.
Add the flour and pulse or beat well to make fine crumbs.
Using your hands, gather the mix together, pressing to form a smooth ball of dough.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface, to a thickness of8mm/⅜”.
Press a 4cm/1.5" cookie-cutter, or egg cup, into the dough to cut circles.
Transfer the dough circles to the prepared baking tray.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden.
Transfer the cooked biscuits to a wire rack to cool.
Store cold biscuits in a tin.

Delicious, and quick and easy to make -- but if you make these biscuits the size specified, the yield is something much closer to 32 than 12! :)

Added freshly ground cardamom seeds and white chocolate chips; they disappeared very quickly,
Going to try orange zest and cranberries next time.

Great recipe! Super simple and yummy biscuits. I swapped the butter for flora dairy free to make it vegan and added 2 tsp of chai spice mix I had made up previously. So good I immediately made another batch to give away. Thank you Doves Farm!

A cookie texture, with a cakey interior.
I only had wholemesl rye flour, and couldn't get the dough to bind without a couple of tbsp milk added. It was easy enough to handle afterwards and cut well. The flavour is quite savoury, so needs additional flavours. I added milk choc chips to this, and will try with cheese and herbs in the future
