2nd December: Festive Spice Biscuits

2nd December: Festive Spice Biscuits

Having crumpled up the recipe well and truly in my bag, I could barely read this lovely recipe for Festive Spice Biscuits found in one of the recent Waitrose Magazines. But I have been looking forward to baking them for ages and they are honestly one of the most moorish tasty biscuits I’ve had in a long time, very simple recipe, not many ingredients – happy baking!


I bought the star cookie cutters on eBay for a couple of quid and I am very pleased with them!


Follow the recipe, mix your ingredients to make the dough, then chill it for an hour or so in cling film. If your like me and you’ve run out of cling film, I cut up a freezer bag!


Roll out your dough to the thickness of a £1 coin, then get cutting!


Bake for 15 minutes or so. I’ll let you in on a nifty trick I learnt but didn’t have time to photograph…when you get them out of the oven, the biscuits will have splayed out a bit, so to get those crisp edges back, whilst they are still hot – re-cut them out with the cutters. But once they go cold, its almost impossible to re-shape them!

Then all that’s left to do is sit back and enjoy your handiwork, hear the sound of the oohs and aahs from your family and friends then dunk them into a nice cup of tea! Always tea with biscuits!
