Cinnamon sugar dusted biscuits that are perfect for children to make as Christmas gifts.

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 6). Cream the butter with the sugar, until soft and light. Beat in the egg.

    • 250g Butter (unsalted) (softened)
    • 125g Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar (We use Billington's)
    • 1 Egg(s) (free range) (large)
  2. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt. Knead gently to form a soft dough. Place into a bowl, wrap in cling film and chill for one hour before using.

    • 400g Plain White Flour (We use Allinson)
    • 1tsp Baking powder
    • 1tsp Salt
  3. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to approximately 5 mm thick (allow a few minutes to warm up at room temperature if too firm to roll straight from fridge).

  4. Cut into star shapes using a 5cm star shaped cutter. Place on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking parchment.

  5. To make the topping mix the demerara sugar with the ground cinnamon.

    • 50g Unrefined Demerara Sugar (We use Billington's)
    • 1tsp Cinnamon
  6. Brush the biscuits with the beaten egg and sprinkle with the sugar topping

    • 1 Egg(s) (free range) (large, Beaten )
    • 50g Unrefined Demerara Sugar (We use Billington's)
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes until slightly golden. Allow biscuits to cool on a wire rack.
