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.
