Recipe ~ Spice Biscuits: Perfect for Those Hard-to-Buy-For People #recipe

These spice biscuits (or cookies for Americans) are the perfect homemade gift. They are quick and easy to make, taste good and go well with a cup of tea or coffee.

Spice Biscuits


250 g butter/ 2.2 stick of butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon golden syrup
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons mixed spice

Beat the butter and sugar to a cream. Add the egg and the golden syrup, then mix in the dry ingredients. Roll balls about the size of a teaspoon and place on a cookie tray (greased). Flatten with a wet fork. Bake at 180C/350F for 12-15 minutes until they are golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.

Shelley’s notes:
*These bicuits spread during cooking, so don’t put them too close together on the tray.
*This is a Jo Seagar recipe from her Easy-Peasy Summer Entertaining book
*This recipe makes 36 biscuits

    Sounds good! I made fudge and cherry chocolate clusters over the weekend. Trying to decide if I feel like making Christmas cutouts this year. Or more importantly, if I can find people to help me eat them!
