Almond Fork Biscuits

Fork biscuits are a traditional english tea time treat – their ingredient list is simple with a traditional fork biscuit being made simply with sugar, flour and butter. They are flattened with a fork which gives them their name. This recipe from Lakeland adds almonds for an extra level of flavour.

Ingredients:
  • 100g butter, softened
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 150g Self-Raising Flour
  • 25g Flaked Almonds
  • A Few Drops of Almond Extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / 350 F / Gas 4..
  2. Lightly grease 2 baking trays.
  3. Measure the butter into a bowl and beat with a wooden spoon. Gradually beat in the sugar and almond extract and then mix in the flour. Bring the mixture together with your hands to form a dough, adding a little water if required. Form the dough into balls about the size of a walnut and place well part on the prepared baking trays. Dip a fork in a little water and use this to flatten the biscuits. Sprinkle flaked almonds on top.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes until lightly golden. Lift off the baking tray and leave to cool completely on wire rack.
