Poker chip cookies recipe

Like we said before, this poker chip cookies recipe is pretty easy. But we have one important piece of advice. Before you get started, read the whole thing through once. We spend a lot of time diving straight in to recipes before we really understand all the steps. It puts you under unnecessary pressure, so don’t succumb to it if you can avoid it! Definitely ends up taking more time in the long run than if you carefully read first to get it all straight in your head.

Oh and by the way, this poker chip cookies recipe makes about 25 biscuits. But if you need a different amount, it can scale up or down fairly easily!


400g plain flour
