These are just the handiest snack to have tucked away in the freezer.
450g Self raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
100g caster sugar
275ml natural/greek yoghurt or milk
Combine all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl until a fairly firm dough. Then roll out to 2cm or 3cm, I tend to do the latter. Use a large round cutter and place onto a greased baking tray. They do rise and expand a little so give them a little space between each one.
- 230ºC/Gas Mark 8
- 10 – 12 minutes until golden brown.
Best served warm with butter, jam and cream if you like it.
Once cold I always store them in bags in the freezer as taste better fresh and not a couple of days old. I couldn’t possibly eat a batch in a day. 😉 I’ve substituted raisins for walnuts before, which give a great different texture. I’ve also cooked spinach and added for a savoury taste, you can admit or add less sugar for the savoury ones.
My friend gave me the cake stand as she’s moving house – I love it!
