This is a simple, easy, basic biscuit recipe to which you can add a variety of ingredients to change the type of biscuit. Anything from sweet to savoury.
For a sweet biscuit, add a tablespoon of hundreds and thousands to the mix. You could also add: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice or star anise - or whatever you want in the way of spices. Also try adding peanut butter or almonds. Just prior to cooking, sprinkle some coarse sugar on top, and they will end up like "Nice" biscuits.

Perfect , I didn't need any milk ( my egg was big ) . Put plenty of flour when kneading and shaping . I rolled little balls and flattened slightly . Some I left plain, some I sprinkled with demerara sugar and some I made a little dimple in a put a blob of jam in . All were delicious . Have put this recipe in my hand written recipe book so definitely will be making them again . - 21 Jul 2015
