I love these biscuits, they’re cute as a button and so easy too! Perfect to take to your next craft group get-together or guild meeting. They look great dipped in chocolate too 🙂 To make it easier for you I’ve taken photos of every step and given my tips as well.
125g caster or icing sugar
125g self raising flour
125g plain flour
3 tsp ground cinnamon
Screw top from a bottle of coke or water (washed)
Add flours and mix to a smooth dough. No need to sift the flour if you’ve brought it from your supermarket – it should be sifted well enough and you’ll be mixing thoroughly enough that you’ll work out any lumps. The one tip here is to add the flour gradually, it gets quite hard to mix towards the end there.
Use a straw to punch out the thread holes – you will probably have to wiggle a bit but the dough should go up into the straw and come out cleanly. If the straw gets too full just push out the collected dough.
Bake for 12-15 mins at 180C in the middle of the oven. You may have to separate into batches. When they’re done place onto an oven tray to cool. Serve with tea on your best china – complete with doilies 🙂
