- 100g butter
- 50g muscovado sugar
- 100g plain flour
Beat the butter and the sugar together until smooth. Add in the flour. Beat - it will turn into a kind of crumbly mix. When this is done, roll the mix into about 10 small (inch sized) balls and pop them on a baking tray with baking paper.
Cook at 180 for 5 mins then take out and press them down so they are about 4-5mm thick with the back of a spoon. You might see that some of the butter has melted into a pool. This is supposed to happen. Now chuck them back in for another 5 mins.
It is likely that they have all kind of melded together so use a cookie cutter (Elena very kindly gave me some recently so I got to use a funky purple one) and cut them into 10 cookies/biscuits.
Now leave them to cool and harden up - as ever I put mine outside for a few minutes (if you can, lift the baking paper out so that it is directly against the floor, it makes it cool faster).
Pop on a plate and sprinkle with icing sugar.
