Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl and mix for 40 seconds/speed setting 5. Roll the dough into a ball, wrap in cling film and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Pre-heat the oven to 180 °C. Roll the pastry out on a floured work surface so that it is 3–4 mm thick and cut out biscuits of any shape. In batches, arrange the biscuits on a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper and bake for 10 minutes until golden. Remove and allow to cool on a cake rack.
