Butterscotch Biscuits (Cookie) Recipe
This is a recipe for a rich dark biscuit or cookie as it is known in some parts of the world.
12oz self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
8oz brown sugar
1teaspoon vanilla essence
Pre heat oven to 350F. Grease a baking sheet. Then, melt the sugar, margarine and vanilla essence together in a saucepan. Heating gently. Once mixed, remove from heat and when mixture has cooled add the beaten egg and mix.
Sift the flour and salt together in a bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour the cooled egg/sugar mixture into the centre. Knead this into stiff dough. It will be fairly dry but do not add any additional liquid. Roll out the dough approx. 1/2 inch thick and cut into biscuit shapes with a cutter (1&1/2 to 3inch)
Place on the baking sheet sufficiently spaced to allow for spreading. Bake for approx. 20 minutes until golden.
As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
