Easy biscuit making activity (and lots of fun!)

I love to bake and I love to eat so I am really pleased the Boy seems to enjoy both of these things too. We have discovered a really easy biscuit recipe which makes a playdoh type consistency which means they can be moulded and shaped by little hands and shoved with chocolate buttons / raisins / hundreds and thousands before being cooked for a very quick 10 minutes. They really are biscuits and not chewy cookies but they are yummy.

The Boy and I make the mixture together (with my beloved Kenwood Chef) and then we cut them out and decorate, if the decorations don’t make it into the Boys mouth first!


Ingredients (makes 8 big biscuits or lots of little shapes)

    • 1oz sugar
    • 2oz butter
    • 3oz flour
    • A little bit of milk (if needed)
    • Biscuit decorations eg: smarties, chocolate chips, raisins, hundreds and thousands.


    • Preheat oven to 180 degrees
    • Mix the sugar, butter and flour together until they form a dough. If the mixture is a bit dry (mine usually is) add milk little by little to gain the right consistency. It should be a kneed-able dough.
    • Roll out or use your hands to make shapes, we use our hands and different shape cutters.
    • Decorate (you could also decorate the biscuits when cooked and cooled using the same decorations stuck down with icing sugar, its up to you!)
    • Put onto a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, leave to cool (if you can) on a wire rack and enjoy, they are very nice with a cup of tea!
