Digestive Biscuits

Digestive Biscuits are a simple but delicious biscuit. They are also very easy to make.

Ingredients

  • 225 wholemeal flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 90 gram icing sugar
  • 120 gram cold butter
  • 60 ml milk

Instructions

1

Combine dry ingredients, mix well.

2

Add the butter in small cubes and rub in the flour until you have something that looks like breadcrumbs.

3

Add milk and form a ball of dough.

4

If dough is soft, flatten a bit, wrap in plastic wrap and set aside in fridge to firm up for about 15-20 min.

5

In the meantime, preheat oven to 170 degrees Celsius.

6

Roll out dough to about 0.5 cm. Use a cookie cutter to cut out the biscuits. I used a 6cm round cookie cutter but any shape will do.

7

Transfer the biscuits to a baking sheet (lined with baking paper) and if you want, prick a few holes with a fork or toothpick.

8

Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 to 20 minutes.
