Our favourite easy biscuit recipes, from buttery shortbread to Nadiya Hussain’s florentines

According to comedian Jo Brand, ‘there are two types of people in this world: one who opens a packet of biscuits, has one and puts the rest back in the cupboard, and one who eats the whole packet in one go.’ We definitely fall into the latter category!

We love baking biscuits almost as much as we love eating them. They’re a great project for the novice baker, as unlike cakes or bread, they don’t necessarily need to rise. A basic biscuit recipe can be made by combining butter, sugar and flour, and adding extra flavours provides endless variations. From chewy oatmeal cookies to easy shortbread, read on for our favourite biscuit recipes.
