It’s hard to resist a good biscuit and this is no exception! Give this super easy biscuit recipe a try!

With this super easy and versatile biscuit recipe, you can spice up your bickies with almost anything! Add some cocoa powder for a bit of extra chocolaty goodness, or some dried fruit to sweeten them up! Even leave them completely plain and have it with a cup of tea.

These are an excellent addition to any occasion! Chuck them in the kid’s school lunches, or serve them up for your friends with a cuppa!

Allergies in the family? Not a problem! Substitute the butter for any dairy-free spread, or use gluten-free self-raising flour instead!

Ingredients (makes 30 )

  • 250g butter (or dairy free spread or coconut oil)
  • 1 cup sugar (white, brown, raw, coconut sugar)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups self-raising flour (or 280g gluten-free self-raising flour)


  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees. Prepare baking tray with cooking oil spray and baking paper.
  2. Cream butter and sugar (in your kitchen mixer or with beaters) until it is light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in egg.
  4. Mix in self-raising flour slowly using dough attachment or by hand
  5. Roll small balls of dough in your hand and place on baking tray. Flatten with a fork.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes


When adding flavours add powdered ingredients such as cocoa and almond meal, and small stuff like chia seeds and desiccated coconut to the creamed butter and sugar before adding flour. Chunky stuff like chocolate chips and dried fruit should be added after the flour. I have made so many variations on this I can't even remember them all! Some of my favourites have been: Quadruple chocolate - 1/4 to 1/2 cup of cocoa with milk, dark and white chocolate chips. Super coconut - unrefined coconut oil instead of butter then desiccated coconut and coconut chips. Fruity - dried currants, dried blueberry and dried apricot, all finely diced. Christmas - 2 tablespoons of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of nutmeg, one teaspoon of mixed spice and one cup of mixed dried fruit.

  • Wondering about freezing also I assume it’s safe if freezing cough without added flavour then when ready to bak could defrost and add


  • I tried this and put in pieces of the new caramilk chocolate…. please try as they’re so good!


  • I wonder if these can be rolled in a log and frozen and then just cut off and baked fresh when needed?


  • Just 3 ingredients… that’s crazy awesome


  • These are easy and delicious cookies and can be substituted with whatever is in the pantry. Also, is a fun activity for little ones to keep busy on rainy afternoons.


  • This is similar to a recipe I use too. Just add in what you want like choc chips or nuts or cornflakes.


  • My kids love cookies like this but they are my least favourite ones. But easy and fun to make.


  • The possibilities are endless … can’t wait to start experimenting ????
