We love cinnamon as an ingredient for baking. It reminds us of Christmas. This biscuit recipe involves cinnamon which really brings them to life around the festive period. They're the perfect thing to make if you need to keep the children busy over the festive period. These will also make a great little gift for loved ones if you put them in an airtight mason jar with a little ribbon around the top. 


  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 Unsalted Butter (Softened)
    • 125g Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar (We like Billington's)
    • 1 Free Range Large Egg
  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)
    • 1 tsp Baking Powder
    • 1 tsp 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)
    • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  6. Brush the biscuits with the beaten egg and sprinkle with the sugar topping

    • 1 Large Free Range Egg(s) (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.
