Number of serving: 10
75 g/3 ounces wholemeal flour

75 g/3 ounces plain flour

100 g/4 ounces butter, softened

50 g/2 ounces caster sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 180o C/160o C fan oven/350oF/Gas mark 4.
  • Place all the ingredients in a food processor and whiz until the mixture almost comes together and resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  • Then tip onto the work surface and bring it together with your hands.
  • If you are not using a food processor, rub the butter into the combined flour and sugar in a bowl and bring together with your hands.
  • Sprinkle your work surface with a little flour (brown or white) and roll out the dough until it is about 5mm/ ┬╝in thick.
  • Using a biscuit cutter, cut into whatever shapes you like. Transfer onto a baking tray (no need to grease or line) and bake in the oven for 6-10 minutes depending on the size, or until they are pale golden and feel firm on top.
  • Remove carefully and cool on a wire rack.
