Cinnamon Biscuits!

by - November 23, 2016

Hey everyone,

as it's getting closer and closer to Christmas, I thought I would share with you a slightly festive recipe. Enjoy these gorgeous cinnamon cookies! xxx (makes roughly 20)


Vegetable oil - for greasing
150g of Plain Flour - plus a little extra for rolling
50g of Caster Sugar
115g of Unsalted Butter
1/2 tsp. of Cinnamon
1 medium Egg Yolk
Pinch of Sea Salt
Writing icing for decoration

Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas Mark 6. Brush 2 baking trays with oil.

Place the flour, sugar, butter, salt and cinnamon in the bowl of a food processor and whiz until a crumb like consistency. Add the egg yolk and bring the dough together into a ball. Wrap it in clingfilm and chill for an hour.

Knead the dough until it's pliable. On a lightly floured work surface, roll it out to a thickness of about 3mm. Cut out the biscuits using whichever cutter shape you like. Roll the dough out twice to get around 20 biscuits.

Lay the biscuits 1cm apart on the baking trays and bake for 9-12 minutes, until lightly coloured. The lower tray may take longer than the higher tray.

Remove the trays from the oven and leave the biscuits to cool for a few minutes and then transfer them to a cooling rack to cool. Now leave them to cool completely.

Decorate the biscuits as desired with writing icing and leave them to set before putting them into an air-tight container (they will keep in there for several days).

So, thank you so much for reading, and I will see you all very, very soon.

Love Lou
