As a kid, my grandparents used to get me these biscuits from a nearby bakery and its name was SOOSBERRY.  I am not sure if this is the real name .It is also known as  Butter biscuits.  I used to enjoy every bite of this coz it used to just melt away in ones mouth. Each time I hear the name Soosberry I am reminded of my grandparents house, when they lived at the Railway Colony in Madurai.

Now this is a very simple recipe and any novice baker can try this delicious biscuit. I have used butter, though the bakery bought biscuits are made of vegetable shortening/vanaspathi[ dalda].


All Purpose flour/Maida                                          3 cups
Sugar [Powdered] or Icing Sugar                            1 1/2 cups
Butter or Vanaspathi[Vegetable Shortening]            1 cup

  • Knead Maida and Sugar powder and butter/vanaspathi into dough.
  • If the dough is dry add a little more butter/vanaspathi and knead well.
  • Spread the dough on a platter or chappathi maker.
  • The thickness should be about 1/2 an inch.
  • With the help of a cookie cutter cut the dough.
  • Place these biscuits on a well buttered cookie sheet.
  • Bake the biscuits for about 15-20 mins at 150* C.

That's it, your butter biscuit is ready !!!!
