Ingredients: 
  • 75g Unsalted Butter
  • 225 ml Just Milk Semi-Skimmed
  • 2 eggs
  • 500g Wholemeal plain flour
  • 50g Billington’s Golden Caster Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
Equipment: 
  • 2x Pyrex Glass Mixing Bowl
  • Rolling Pin
  • Pyrex Non-Stick Baking Tray
Method: 
  • Heat the oven to 220°C (gas 7)
  • Mix together the flour and baking powder in a bowl, and then add the Président Unsalted Butter cut in cubes. Work with the hands to obtain consistency and add the sugar while stirring.
  • Then, whisk the eggs and add the milk while whisking.
  • Put aside two tablespoons of the egg and milk mix and add the remaining mix to the bowl gradually, whisking continuously until you obtain a soft, wet, sticky dough.
  • Roll the dough with a rolling pin until it is 2 cm thick on a floured surface.
  • With a cookie cutter (or a glass), cut circles of paste and arrange them on a Pyrex Non Stick Baking Tray. Brush them with the combination eggs/milk that you put aside and place in the oven until well risen and golden for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Let them cool down covered with a wet cloth.
