Add the flour and vanilla as you mix thoroughly until fine and combined.
Roll into a ball tablespoon-sized amounts of the dough and gently place it onto your lined baking tray, (they flatten themselves as they bake). Repeat for the rest of your dough till it is all rolled up.
Place the tray into a preheated 180 degrees Celsius oven and let them bake for 10-15 minutes. (A good cook will always instinctively know when their food is ready). If you are not sure, you can let them bake until lightly golden.
Once ready, remove from the oven and allow them to rest on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to completely cool.
Place the cooled golden babies into a container where you can store up to a week. You can freeze them for up to three months using an airtight freezer container.

Here Are the Best Methods of How to Reheat Biscuits
Reheating biscuits is good as it redeems their freshness and is also ideal as it is less wasteful. There are several ways in which you can reheat your biscuits which include:
- Reheating in the oven.
Reheating in the microwave.
Reheating in the oven is suitable if you have a substantial amount of biscuits to heat.
What you will need
- Aluminum foil.
Heat them up
Tear a piece of the foil large enough to hold your biscuits and lay it smooth on the base of the baking dish. A clear dish is preferable as it lets you watch the biscuits and make more firm decisions on whether done or not. Alternatively, you can use a cooking sheet as it is easier to lift and has a wider capacity.
Arrange the biscuits in columns and rows and ensure that the sides are all touching the foil. Lift the sides and ends of the foil and wrap them loosely. Note that you should not stack them on top of each other to ensure uniformity and equal heat distribution.
Once securely and neatly covered, place them in an 180 degrees Celsius preheated oven and let them stay for roughly 10 minutes (subject to the thickness of your biscuits).
Reheating in a microwave is faster and ideal when you have only a few biscuits to reheat.
What you need
- A damp paper towel- it keeps the biscuits moist during the process thus preventing them from becoming over-chewy. It also speeds up the process while maintaining the texture.
Microwave safe plate- always use these because they are made to withstand the extreme heat.
Place the biscuits on the plate and ensure you do not stack much. Instinctively put the right amount on the plate. (Did you know that leaving a small space at the center of the plate while heating any food in the microwave ensures even distribution of heat?)
Fully cover them with the damp towel and ensure it is well secured so as not to fall off as the plates pins.
Place the plate in the microwave and set it to medium power and the timer to 20 seconds. Wait for your golden biscuits to reheat.
While these might be the best approaches on how to reheat biscuits, there are other methods and techniques that might suit your kitchen better. There is always so much to learn to enhance your kitchen proficiency.
