Possibly the silliest biscuit name ever.
They are, however, extremely delicious. I made some the other night from a recipe I found in a Women’s Weekly cookbook. They’re really easy to make and don’t involve any strange or hard to find ingredients.
- 250g butter
- 1 tspn vanilla
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 3/4 cups plain flour
- 1 tspn bicarbonate soda
- 1/2-1 tspn nutmeg
- cinnamon sugar for rolling dough in
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Cream butter, both sugars and vanilla together. Add the eggs, one at a time making sure each is mixed in thoroughly. Add flour, bicarb soda and nutmeg and mix well. The dough then needs o be rolled into balls (approx tbsn sized) and rolled in the cinnamon sugar. If the dough is too soft, placing it in the fridge for a while before rolling can useful. I cooked these for about 15 minutes and the recipes yielded 34 biscuits but you could probably get more if you made them a little smaller.
