I love these biscuits, they’re cute as a button and so easy too! They are my absolute favourite, which is why I try to avoid making them – I end up eating half the dough and then most of the biscuits too!
125g caster or icing sugar
125g self raising flour
125g plain flour
3 tsp ground cinnamon
Cream the butter and sugar together. Make sure there’s no lumps of butter. You can sit the mixing bowl in a dish of hot water to help the butter soften but make sure it doesn’t melt.
Add egg and cinnamon and mix thoroughly. No need to pre whip the egg, just drop them straight in.
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.
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 🙂
