  • 2 sticks unsalted butter (200g)
  • 1 cup icing sugar (170g)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ teaspoons almond extract (optional)
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour (approx. 300-320 g)
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Mix the butter and sugar with a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a flat beater. Add the egg and mix well.
  2. Add the extract(s) and mix. Combine the flour and salt in a bowl and gradually add to the wet mixture, beating on low speed to combine.
  3. Cover and let the dough rest in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Knead briefly on a floured surface and roll out the dough with a rolling pin to a thickness of about 6-7 mm.
    Cut out the biscuits with a biscuit cutter and bake on a tray lined with parchment or baking paper for 14-16 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Smaller biscuits may need less time and larger cookies may need up to 18 minutes.
  5. This homemade biscuit recipe yields 8 to 10 large biscuits or 20-25 smaller biscuits.
