  1. Step 1:

    Pre-heat the oven to 190°C, (fan 170°C, gas mark 5). Melt the butter and cool slightly.

  2. Step 2:

    Whisk the egg whites until stiff but not dry, then fold in the golden caster sugar, melted butter, flour and mixed spice.

  3. Step 3:

    Spoon onto baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper and spread each spoonful into a 10cm (4 in) circles. The mixture will be very thin.

  4. Step 4:

    Bake in batches for 5-6 minutes until they have a golden tinge.

  5. Step 5:

    Immediately remove from the tray, using a fish slice and wind the biscuits around the greased handles of wooden spoons or a rolling pin.

  6. Step 6:

    When cooled slightly remove from the handles and place on a wire rack to cool.

    If the biscuits become hard during shaping return to the oven for a few seconds until softened.
