Honey, spice and all things nice.
December. The perfect time to start baking in my eyes.
Christmas time is known for all of the glorious food, a time to indulge, so why not try making these perfect little Christmas biscuits – which in the grand scheme of things – aren’t too bad for you.
To make these biscuits please see the following recipe:
- 125g of softened butter
- 250g of flour
- 1 large beaten egg
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 125g of sugar
First, you need to gently knead the butter and flour together, to almost form crumbs.
Once this is done, you should add the half teaspoons of spices, teaspoon of honey and sugar and give the mixture a stir so everything is binded together.
After this, add the one beaten egg and stir the mixture until it starts to forma large ball of mixture. This is when you can start rolling out the mixture, and using cutters to make your biscuits.
Find a flat surface and coat in flour, once this is done you can roll out the mixture and begin cutting your biscuits into shapes.
Place onto a baking sheet on a tray, and leave in the oven for around 10 minutes. Depending on your oven this may be a little too long so start checking them every few seconds from the 8 minute mark.
Finish by dusting each of the biscuits with a little icing sugar, and you are finished!
Obviously, you can choose to decorate these biscuits however you wish – with icing or without.
