  • 1. First beat the butter at room temperature until creamy and then add the sugar. Feel free to use brown sugar if you prefer or maybe do half of each- it’s all about using your imagination. Mix the butter and the sugar for approx. 2min.

  • 7. Bake until they get a LIGHT brown colour, around 10 minutes, and I stress light because mine look like they forgot to pack sunscreen for summer in Africa, oopsie! The ones who weren’t burned tasted really good though, so don’t let my poor timing skills put you off baking biscuits. Make sure you try them with vanilla ice cream, yummy!
