Vanilla Biscuits

Rituals and Recipes | May 25, 2020

These biscuits were introduced to us by our sister last week during quarantine. If you have been following along with our stories you will know that we are in London with our family in a FULL house! 

It's a recipe we love to do with the little ones, not only are they insanely delicious, they are easy to make and provide endless room for creativity... We do suggest that you have basic moulds to get started, however look around your kitchen and be creative with what you can use to shape the dough and use your hands to get inspired...
