  3. Rub together butter and flour until properly mixed.
  4. Add salt, baking powder and the mixture from the pan and knead a dough. Add some more milk if required.
  5. Roll and dough and cut it in shapes of your choice.
  6. Prick it on some spots (optional)
  7. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes or until crisp.

Tadaaa! Light and crispy digestive biscuits are ready to disappear in your mouth. Store it in an air tight container for several days.
