Vanilla and Chocolate Biscuits

Everyone loves tin of biscuits - a cherry on top if biscuits are home made. If you will ask ten different people to tell how to make good biscuits? they will tell 10 different tips and tricks to make a good biscuit. Like you should make dough in a wooden bowl, or main thing is flour which should be white Lilly brand or white southern brand. Some will say they use lard, and some butter. For some, a biscuit must be huge. Others say small. Liquids added to biscuit flour may include buttermilk, heavy cream, flat beer, sour cream or cola. Cream of tartar can make an appearance in a biscuit recipe, as can baking soda and baking powder. But in my opinion good biscuits can be made of plain flour and with simple ingredients, but don't forget to let your dough rest for 20 to 30 minutes. The only thing to make good biscuits is Practice, the more you practice more better your biscuits will be.

My Memory Of These Biscuits

These are traditional Pakistani biscuits, I used to eat them when I was a kid - and whenever a guest shows up, someone runs to bakery to get these biscuits. There, In villages people usually don't inform in advance even if they are coming from a far city. But a funny thing is, they do have a way which gives them some indication of guests. Yes, It's a well respected myth that a crow on wall mean some guests are bound to arrive.

I tried few recipes of biscuits-some turns out good but not that good to impress my guest. Other recipes were good in look as well but they need few ingredients which are not easily available in kitchen cupboard, at least not in mine. Like shortening, some special white flour, butter milk etc. So I got this recipe and tried few times. Every time they turn out good and irresistible So I decided to share it with you.

This is an easy recipe - even a beginner can make these little beauties perfectly.You can easily keep them in a tin or jar for a fortnight. I usually double the amount of ingredients given below and make about 40 biscuits So I can share them with my friends and neighbours.

Some Useful Tips:

Biscuits dough should not be hard.

Please don't overcook biscuits, 10 to 15 minutes are good for them, depending on ovens.

A mixer is not must for biscuits - fork or hand beater can be used for beating and mixing.

Always keep your biscuits in a tin or in a jar, they will last for at least 15 to 20 days easily.
