Biscuit recipe please
« on: September 04, 2012, 12:29 »
I have been volunteered to make heart shaped biscuits for a British Heart foundation sale.
Every time I make shortbread it crumbles and falls apart.
Does anyone have an idiot proof   ::) recipe for a decent biscuit that will cut with a cutter and not fall apart when baked. Or point me to one on the web.

Thanks very much

Elaine

You could try the sugar cookie recipe here.

or make these gingerbreads into hearts instead of snowflakes.

Make cinnamon biscuits, I usually make them with the grandkids for Thewordwemustnotsay, so they take a bit of abuse  :lol:

or you could make shortbread biscuits, i did that for my local show - i used a simple shortbread finger recipe, put it in the fridge for half an hour, rolled it out, cut it into shape, baked for 10-15 min - job done! oh and the biscuits tasted lovely!
