64B0DB62-5092-4D25-9415-D456029FEE83

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 18 to 20 minutes at 180 C / 350 F
Makes: 36-40 biscuits

Ingredients:

• All purpose flour (Maida) – 1 cup
• Softened Salted Butter- 1 stick or 1/2 cup
• Powdered Sugar- 1/2 cup
• Vanilla extract – 1 tsp

Method:

1. Keep the butter on countertop at least 1-2 hours before to soften it (or) heat in microwave for 30 seconds at 30% power and if not softened, microwave for another 15 seconds at 30% power. Do not melt it completely.

2. In a large mixing bowl, mix softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy using a hand mixer.

3. Add vanilla extract and mix.

4. Add all purpose flour slowly and combine well to form a soft non sticky dough.
Note: If the dough is crumbly, add 1 tbsp water and mix. If the dough is sticky, add 1-2 tsp all purpose flour and knead. 

5. Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F)

6.  Shape the dough into small balls and press with a fork to form lines. Carefully withdraw the fork. Arrange on a lined baking tray. Leave some space between the biscuits as they expand while baking. This recipe makes 36-40 biscuits.

7. Bake in the oven at 180 C (350 F) for /18 to 20 minutes. I baked for 20 minutes.

8. Cool them on a cooling rack for 45 minutes and store in air tight jar. Crispy, buttery, melt in the mouth butter biscuits are ready to serve!

Notes:

1. If you are using unsalted butter, add just a pinch of salt when you are adding the flour. Do not add more than a pinch

2. Using whole wheat flour in this recipe is not recommended as it will turn hard and dense and will not produce the same results!

3. I used hand mixer to mix butter and sugar until pale and fluffy (takes about 2 minutes). If you are using whisk, it will take longer to achieve the consistency!
