How to make Biscuits
We also need flour that is made from wheat
The flour comes from the grains at the end of the stalks
You need to grind the grains up in a mill to make flour.
Windmills were used to make flour but most is now made in modern factories.
There are three different types: plain flour, self raising flour and wholemeal flour.
Self raising flour has a raising agent added to it to make things rise when cooking
Wholemeal flour is made using the whole grain of wheat
Where does Sugar come from?
Sugar comes from two very different types of plant
Sugar comes from sugar cane that is grown in hot countries like India and the Caribbean
Sugar also comes from sugar beet that grows in countries like the UK
After processing both types of sugar look the same
Sugar makes things taste sweet – but too much can be bad for your teeth!
You need sugar in biscuits to make them taste nice and to give them texture
Butter and oils
For home baking most people will use butter or margarine.
At United Biscuits we use more oils such as sunflower oil – which is healthier
Baking powder or bicarbonate of soda are the most common raising agents.
You need them to make biscuit doughs expand or rise up during cooking to make the biscuits bigger.
They are not need in every recipe and you only need a small amount – normally less than a teaspoon full
Flavouring and Decoration
Make your biscuits different by:
Using different flavours
Using different shapes
Using different decoration
What will you do with your biscuits?
Different Flavour Suggestions
Oats will make your biscuits crunchier like a flapjack
Dried fruit such as raisins, sultanas or cherries will give your biscuits a fruity taste
Add grated coconut for a tropical taste
Add a small amount of spices such as cinnamon or ‘mixed spice’ to spice up your biscuits
A few chocolate chips will give your biscuits a chocolatey flavour
Shaping your biscuits
These are biscuit cutters to make your biscuits different shapes
But don’t worry if you do not have one you can use an down cups instead to cut out your biscuits from the dough
Or you can use a knife or spatula to cut out biscuits in any shape you like!
Decorating your biscuits
