Home baked biscuits are a treat, especially with the evening tea or coffee. Baking shortbread biscuits at home is very easy and takes only about an hour. If you are looking to bake a batch, put your baking gloves on and keep reading this article to make these delightfully tasty biscuits.
Ingredients
  • Butter or margarine - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 3 cups
  • Vanilla - 1 teaspoon
  • Flour - 2 ½ cups
Instructions
  1. Begin by pre-heating the oven to 350°F, and while the oven heats, grind the sugar in an electric grinder to get powdered sugar which will be easy to mix in the dough.
  2. This also needs to be done in order to avoid solid pieces of sugar from getting in your mouth. Biscuits with unmixed sugar destroy their real taste.
  3. Now take a large bowl, either made of plastic or wood and wash it properly.
  4. Once washed, add butter, powdered sugar and vanilla in it and beat with the help of a spoon.
  5. Now while stirring introduce the flour in the mixture slowly.
  6. In a matter of minutes you will have dough in the bowl.
  7. Now you need to roll this dough on a surface covered with flour. Try not to press the dough too much since you want it to be thick.
  8. If you have a biscuit cutter, then you need to use it to cut the dough into pieces, these cuts should be according to the number of biscuits that you want to make.
  9. You will now require an ungreased biscuit sheet on which you need to place these cut pieces of dough.
  10. Keep some distance between the pieces as you place them on the sheet.
  11. Now place this sheet in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes, until you can see the biscuits turn golden brown, which is a sign that they have been properly cooked.
  12. Once the oven timer stops, take them out using a baking glove to protect your hand from any burns and put the biscuits aside to let them cool off in normal room temperature.
  13. You can then serve them with tea as they are an evening delight.
