Plain cracker style biscuits get eaten at a very rapid rate in our house. Making them ourselves is good on so many levels. It’s cheap, they’re free of additives and best of all, it keeps the kids amused for ages. Their jobs are cutting and glazing and they’re getting pretty good at it.

Plain Biscuits
500g plain wholemeal flour
1 teaspoon salt
125g butter, roughly chopped
1 cup milk
a little extra milk to glaze
Combine it well (you can use a food processor. Roll thin, cut them out (or let the Ankle Biters do it. Glaze with milk (or let the Ankle Biters do it). Bake at 180 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool on a wire rack and then store in an airtight container. No idea how long they last beacuse they get eaten very quickly in my house.

I usually 6 or 7 dozen out of a batch.
