These biscuits are incredibly easy to make as well as being useful. Just form a rich biscuit dough into a roll and then wrap and keep in the freezer or ice-making compartment of the refrigerator. Then, at any time and within minutes, you can produce thin, light and crisp biscuits with a deliciously buttery flavour. These are perfect to serve with ice cream.
The richness of the dough makes the biscuit roll easy to slice, and you can achieve far thinner biscuits this way than by any other method I know. You can slice as many biscuits as you want from the frozen roll and then put it back in the freezer for another time.
Vary the biscuits by adding flavourings to the flour before mixing with the butter and egg. Try finely grated lemon or orange rind, finely chopped nuts, cocoa powder (for chocolate biscuits), finely chopped dried fruit or peel, desiccated coconut, and ground or whole spices. Makes about 60 biscuits.
