1 2 3 Biscuits

These are great biscuits to make both with and for kids. Most people have the ingredients in the pantry, they are quick and easy and bake in 12 mins.

1 2 3 Biscuits


All you need to remember is the ratio 1:2:3 and then add the three basic ingredients; sugar, butter, flour (I remember it by thinking of them in order, using the lowest amount of the item that is commonly perceived to be worse for you). As long as you get the ratio correct you can make as much as you like.

1 cup/   1 oz/ 100g/  50g    caster sugar
2 cups/ 2 oz/  200g/ 100g  butter
3 cups/ 3 oz/  300g/ 150g  plain flour

Mix the sugar and butter together
Add the flour and mix until you have a ball of dough
Roll out the dough and cut into the shapes you require
Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 12 mins at 150ÂșC
