Be Inspired Monday: The Most Delicious Biscuits Ever!

These are the most delicious biscuits ever! Best of all, the dough mixtures can be frozen till needed and you can create any flavour combo your family likes best! Enjoy, and be sure to let me know how much your family liked them!

Here's the recipe, just for you!

Basic Biscuit Dough
  • 250g butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup castor sugar
  • 1 tspn vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2-2 1/4 cups of plain flour, sifted
  1. mix butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl with electric mixer, until light and creamy.
  2. add egg and mix until combined.
  3. stir in two cups of flour for a soft dough, or 2 1/4 cups of flour for a firm dough.
  4. add flavourings and shape, as desired.
  5. bake at 180 oC for app. 12-15 mins
Flavour combinations:

Our favourite of all is dark chocolate drops and chopped up pieces of dried apricots. Delicious! We have tried white and dark choc and craisons, which were also very nice! MR S is currently in the kitchen making some 'lemon' ones using the rind and juice of some delicious lemons we received from a lady at church ... so we will see how they go!
I think a white choc and macadamia would be nice too. Or you could place them on a tray and press in a dint to make jam drops (if you're using the 'firmer' dough recipe).
What other combinations could I make?
Oh would you like a picture of them? ...
I would love for them to be on a pretty little plate next to a steaming hot cup of tea, but they just don't last long enough!
Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
