Try baking these cinnamon and ginger spiced biscuits created by Shelina Permalloo. Traditionally these are eaten at the Dutch festival "Sinterklaas" on 5th December. They are great with a cuppa and to share with friends. 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, gas mark 4).

  2. In a large mixing bowl rub in the flour and butter using the tips of your fingers until you create a very fine crumble.

    • 160g Allinson Plain White Flour
    • 100g Unsalted Butter
  3. Add all the other ingredients to the bowl and mix until it comes together as a dough.

    • 1 tsp Cinnamon (ground)
    • 1 tsp Ginger (ground)
    • 1 tsp Mixed Spice
    • 1 tsp Baking Powder
    • 70g Billington's Unrefined Molasses Sugar
    • 4 tsp Milk (whole)
    • Pinch of Salt
  4. Once combined turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface and roll the dough out to a thickness of about 2/3cm.

  5. Using an 8cm cookie cutter, cut discs from the dough and place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

  6. Place in the oven and bake the biscuits for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
