How to make Granny Kit's Biscuits


This is a recipe kindly given to me by my Godmother. It was often made by her mother and whenever I'd visit I would always be welcomed by the sweet buttery smell of these fresh baked biscuits. As a child I never got the chance to tell her how much I love them, which I regret.
Rest In Peace Granny Kit.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350F/180C.
  • Soften the margarine (I used my fingers) then add the sugar in parts, beating until smooth.
  • If you are adding any essence, I suggest adding it now.
  • Gradually sift in the flour and mix until it forms a dough like substance (flavouring can be added with the flour, lemon rind, cocoa etc).
  • Using your hands, form into balls the size of walnuts and flatten onto a greased tray, using a fork dipped in water.
  • At this stage I sprinkled a few chocolate chips onto the biscuits.
  • Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, and leave to cool for at least 20 minutes (longer if you've used chocolate).

    Chocolate chip cookies are my kid's favorite and for a special treat they like chocolate chip pancakes. (Too sweet for me though.) I will try your recipe with them. It is simple but elegant.

    I tried using chocolate chips in my cupcakes but they sank to the bottom!
