    Default Simple biscuit recipe?

    I'm looking for something fun to do with DS but there's about a million different recipes online which is a bit overwhelming.
    I'm after something not too complicated, that we can roll out and make shapes with the cookie cutters. Either sweet or savoury is fine.

    Anyone have a tried and tested recipe they could share?

    Aw, that's cute. Have fun with your little one. The one I've used a billion times is the same as listed as "simple butter biscuits" on Taste.com

    125g butter, softened
    1/2 cup caster sugar
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 egg, at room temperature
    2 cups plain flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 tablespoon milk

    1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
    2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla in a small bowl until pale and creamy. Add egg and mix until well combined. Sift flour and baking powder over butter mixture. Add milk and stir until just combined.
    3. Using 1 heaped tablespoon of mixture at a time, roll mixture into balls. Place on baking trays lined with baking paper. Using the heel of your hand, flatten biscuits slightly (allow room for spreading).
    4. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, swapping trays over in oven after 10 minutes, or until light golden. Allow biscuits to cool on trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Serve.

    Simple and easy to adapted to lots of flavours

    1 tin of condensed milk
    1 stick of butter (250 grams )
    4 cups of S R flour

    Optional 1 cup of sugar (i don't add it but some people do)

    Cream butter and milk and flour.

    Bakes in roughly 8 to 12 minutes

    It makes a huge batch. I decide into 4 logs. I use one fresh and freeze the rest.

    For variety I add

    M & M's
    Chopped up chocolates like Mars bars
    Milo
    White chocolate and macadamia
    Caramel buds
    Sprinkles
    Nutella
    Etc..

    I'm allergic to eggs and I rarely bake as so many recipes include egg. Keen to try this out

    Be warned it is addictive. It super yummy as cookie dough and as fresh hot just out of the oven.

    My favourite addition at the moment is Mars bar. I have pkt of mini mars ready for a batch when we get home from school today.

    These look perfect, thank you!
    I'll try BornToBe's first since we have all of those things ready to go. LoveLivesHere's 3 ingredients is definitely a winner for quick and simple, but we don't have any condensed milk in the cupboard, will save that one for next time!

    No-bake slices! They all use condensed milk to bind the ingredients and some of them are pretty amazing.

    @LoveLivesHere should it be unsalted butter? Sorry, baking novice question.

    I use normal because that is what I always have in the house.
