Finding a simple biscuit recipe is a must in a house with plenty of hungry biscuit loving kids. This recipe is one super simple way to get your biscuit fix and in a really speedy time too! The idea behind giving the print in the top of the biscuit I believe originally came from a Mary Berry Cookbook. Hard to remember which one but hey she knows her stuff when it comes to sweet treats right?

The Fork biscuits are easy to adapt too! If you wanted a chocolate version it really is super simple! Instead of 150 g of flour reduce this to 120g and add 30 g of coco powder. Being able to switch the recipe up and have chocolate and plain biscuits really makes these biscuits a perfect addition to any recipe collection. You can always try adding different extracts. Adding vanilla extract works extremely well here!
