I have been making these Butter Biscuits for few years now following my aunt’s recipe and it is a fail proof one. These cookies require very few ingredients and it can be made very quickly.Traditionally these biscuits have the tiny pin point marks on them, which I made using fork.

  • 2 cups All-Purpose flour
  • ½ cup Rice flour
  • ½ lb Butter 2 sticks
  • 1 ¼ cup Sugar
  • ¼ tsp Baking powder
  • ½ tsp Salt


  • Let the butter come to room temperature. Then beat the butter with the sugar until nice and creamy.
  • Meanwhile, sift the flours together along with salt and baking powder.
  • Add the flour mixture slowly to the butter and mix well. Let the dough come together.
  • Gather the dough and knead for a minute. Bring it all together and make a ball.
  • Slightly flatten the dough and then wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for a few minutes. Refrigerating the dough helps to harden it a little bit and makes rolling easy.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 F.
  • Bring the dough out of the refrigerator and then roll it to about ½ inch thick. I layer the dough with plastic wrap and then roll it just so that there are no marks on the surface and the top is smooth.
  • Now using a round cutter or anything you have in hand (I used a small steel box), cut out circles.
  • Using a spatula slowly lay the cookie on to parchment-lined baking trays.
  • Using a fork, make the traditional butter biscuit holes.
  • Bake for about 16 – 18 mins or until the edges turn brown.
  • Slowly transfer the cookies to the cooling rack and once completely cooled, store them in an airtight container.
  • Enjoy the butter biscuits as is or dunked in coffee or tea!
