Eggless biscuits are a huge hit in my house – a really versatile basic biscuit to which you can add anything really.  Best of all you don’t need to worry if the kids (or you) sneak a little cookie dough before the biscuits are baked!

My kids love a little Smartie on top so I always make sure I add these to my Woolies Click & Collect order. You could also add a drop of jam, a plain choc chip or if they’re not going to school, an almond in the centre would be lovely (perfect with your coffee).

Eggless biscuits are just so easy to make I now know the recipe off by heart!  I honestly think I could whip them up in my sleep!  The other thing I love about this recipe is that the biscuits hold their shape nicely – perfect if the kids want to dig out the biscuit cutters and have some fun!
