Butter Biscuits


  • 125 g butter at room temperature
  • 180 g sugar - I used fructose
  • 165 g flour
  • 10 g cocoa powder
  • 15 mls baking powder
  • 1 egg lightly beaten


  • preheat the oven to 150° Celsius
  • cream the butter and the sugar together
  • sieve the dry ingredients into the mix
  • add the egg and mix well
  • roll into balls and place on a greased baking tray
  • press each one with the back of a fork
  • bake for 12 minutes for soft cookies, and 15 minutes to make them more crunchy
  • allow to cool before sampling


the dough can be frozen! Freeze in a sausage shape and defrost in the freezer. Cut off slices, roll into balls and continue as above
