  • 100g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Tip

Make ahead
The biscuits will keep fresh for 2 weeks in an airtight container, or freeze for up to 3 months.

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Melt the butter in a small pan, then allow to cool slightly. Tip all the dry ingredients into a bowl, with ½ tsp salt, then pour in the butter. Add 5-6 tbsp boiling water and combine to make a firm dough.

  2. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface, then roll out until about 0.5cm thick. Cut into small squares, then bake for 12-15 mins until golden. Leave to cool for a few mins, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.
