Roll down your dough to about 1cm thickness. Then, using a cutter or a glass, cut the dough into discs. Between each batch, bring the trimmings together, allow to rest for 5 minutes and roll down the dough again and cut more discs. Repeat until all the dough as been used up.
Place your raw biscuits onto a lightly greased baking tray. Brush them with some egg wash and carefully, make few lines on the top of them with a fork.
