Digestive Biscuits are a simple but delicious biscuit. They are also very easy to make.
- 225 wholemeal flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 90 gram icing sugar
- 120 gram cold butter
- 60 ml milk
Combine dry ingredients, mix well.
Add the butter in small cubes and rub in the flour until you have something that looks like breadcrumbs.
Add milk and form a ball of dough.
If dough is soft, flatten a bit, wrap in plastic wrap and set aside in fridge to firm up for about 15-20 min.
In the meantime, preheat oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
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.
Transfer the biscuits to a baking sheet (lined with baking paper) and if you want, prick a few holes with a fork or toothpick.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 to 20 minutes.
