I just can’t begin to describe how happy it makes me to bake the Shrewsbury. I simply call it the ‘king of cookies’ as I feel nothing beats the taste. From the neighborhood kids, my friends to my family, everyone just loves the Shrewsbury biscuits. Hope you enjoy baking this, too.




Maida (Plain Flour): 300 gms
Butter: 240 gms
Powdered Sugar: 150 gms
Baking Powder: 1/2 Tsp
Milk Powder: 2 Tbsp or 20 gms

Baking Time: 20 minutes at 160 degrees


  1. With a beater, beat the butter, milk powder, sugar.


2. Now, start adding the plain flour and baking powder to this butter-sugar mixture. Remember to fold gently and not use a beater for this. You would get a smooth soft dough. It tool me roughly 5 minutes to put it together.


3. Roll out the dough and cut out the desired shape. Ready to go into the oven for 20-25 minutes. The thickness of Shrewsbury biscuit decides the baking time, actually. If you have rolled the dough thinner, you would not need more than 10-12 minutes to get them ready.


4. It’s ready.
