Yield: 1 servings
|55 grams||Unsalted butter; cut into small|
|; pieces plus extra|
|; for greasing|
|225 grams||Strong white flour|
|1 large||Pinch of salt|
|1 teaspoon||Baking powder|
|6 tablespoons||Single cream|
|Ground sea salt for sprinkling|
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas 4 and generously grease a baking sheet with butter. Sift the flour into a bowl with the salt and baking powder.
Add the butter and cut it into the flour with a knife. Then rub it in with your fingertips until the mixture is the texture of fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the cream, then gather the mixture together to make a firm dough, adding a tablespoon of water if necessary.
On a lightly floured flat surface, roll the dough out very thinly, pressing down on it quite hard. Using a biscuit cutter cut the dough into rounds.
Arrange the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet, prick them all over with a fork and sprinkle over a little sea salt. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until just golden. Turn out on wire racks and leave to cool slightly.
