300g butter, softened
165g sugar
2 eggs
500g flour (you may not need all or you may need extra flour, depending on temp of butter and size of eggs.)

Preheat oven to 180˚C.
Cream butter and sugar and add eggs.
Mix well and add half the flour.
Mix together, using your hands or a wooden spoon.
At this stage, extras can be added (like choc chips or jelly tots).
Continue adding flour until the dough is no longer sticky.
Shape into desired shapes and bake on a greased baking tray for approximately 15 minutes, or until golden brown. (This depends on thickness of the shape.)
Allow to cool and harden slightly before lifting from the tray.

This will make approximately 35 biscuits depending on your choice of size.
