    Hey everyone!

    I've got this recipe for biscuits which I've always used with my Mum when baking. I had a go at working out the syns per biscuit and I worked out 3 syns a biscuit.

    I think this must be wrong as it seems low.

    Could someone with more experience please check the recipe and let me know if I'm wrong!

    Shrewsbury Biscuits

    - 100g Butter
    - 100g Castor Sugar
    - 1 Egg
    - 4 drops of Vanilla Essence
    - 150g Self-Raising Flour
    - 100g Plain Flour (for rolling out the dough)

    1) Preheat oven to 200*C
    2) Cut up butter and beat with a wooden spoon
    3) Beat in sugar until mixture is pale and creamy
    4) Beat in eggs and vanilla essence
    5) Fold in flour
    6) Knead into a stiff dough
    7) Roll out onto a floured board to an 1/4 inch thick
    8) Cut into 2 inch rounds and place on baking trays
    9) Bake for 20 mins until golden brown
    10) Allow to cool on trays for 5 mins

    Any help with syns is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks xxxx:D

    Depends how many biscuits you get from the recipe

    Butter = 10.5 syns per 28 g so 37.5
    Caster sugar = 5.5 syns per 28g so 20
    SR Flour = 5 syns per 28g so 18
    Plain Flour = 4.5 syns per 28g so 16

    Total = 91.5 syns divided by how ever many biscuits you made.

    The recipe says it makes 20 biscuits

    so 91.5 divided by 20 = 4.5 syns

    So each biscuit is 4.5 syns. Thanks!!
