Homemade Tiny Teddy Biscuits
As with most individually packaged snacks, Tiny Teddy’s are extremely expensive, $15.45/kg, or $0.39 per 25g packet. This Homemade Tiny Teddy Biscuits recipe makes 276 biscuits, the equivalent of 21 25g packets, for only $1.62. That’s $3.09/kg, or only $0.08 per 25g packet. That’s a massive saving, and well worth the small amount of effort it takes to make these biscuits.
To make these Tiny Teddy biscuits, we purchased this 3 pack of cutters from eBay, using the smallest cutter which is the closest in size to real Tiny Teddy’s. The process of cutting so many shapes can be a little time consuming, so try rolling out the dough on sheets of baking paper, cutting out the shapes and then removing the excess dough from around the shapes. This avoids the need to move each teddy as you cut them.
- 125g butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 2 cups plain flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon milk
Line two or three baking trays (depending on their size) with baking paper.
Add the softened butter, sugar and vanilla extract to the bowl of a stand mixer and beat until pale.
Add the egg, beating again until combined. Add the flour, baking powder and milk and beat again until the mixture comes together to form a dough.
Remove the dough from the stand mixer and knead gently until smooth. Roll out and cut out shapes using the cookie cutter.
Bake Tiny Teddy's at 180c for 5-10 minutes, depending on your oven. You want to biscuits to begin to colour, but watch carefully that they don't begin to burn.
