A Guernsey Biscuit isn’t a biscuit at all … it is savoury rather than sweet, and more like a bread roll than a biscuit
1lb wholemeal or plain white flour
4oz Guernsey butter
½ oz of sugar
½ oz of salt
8 fl oz warm Guernsey milk
Mix the salt and sieved flour.
Cream the butter, yeast and sugar together.
Add the warm milk.
Leave for in a warm place for ten minutes.
Add the flour to the mixture and knead well.
Cover the bowl and leave to stand in a warm place for 1 hour 30 minutes to rise.
Knead again on a floured board and separate into balls.
Transfer the balls to a greased baking tin and leave to stand for another 20 minutes.
Bake in a preheated hot oven 200°C or Gas mark 6 for 20 minutes or until golden
