Brown Sugar Spice Biscuits

These are great as hanging, edible decorations, just put a hole in the cookie before cooking.

Recipe From Nigel Slater: "The simplest of biscuits for Christmas. Dark, mildly spiced and the sort of crisp cookies you find hanging from Christmas trees all over Europe. If by any chance you are ever looking for the ideal mixture to make gingerbread men, then this is it."


70g butter
80g light muscavado sugar
2 heaping tbsp black treacle or molasses
8 cardamon pods
250g plain flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 level tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 egg yolk
3-4 tbsp milk
icing sugar


Set the oven at 180C/gas mark 4. Cream the butter and sugar together in a mixer till light and fluffy. Add the molasses. Break the cardamom pods open and crush the seeds finely. Add them to the mixture with the flour, bicarbonate of soda, egg yolk, cinnamon and ginger. Beat in a couple of tablespoons of milk, then slowly add more until you have reached a point where the mixture can be rolled out like pastry. Bring the ingredients together then roll out on a floured board like pastry.

Cut the biscuits into rounds, moons and stars. I sometimes do a few Christmas trees, too. Lay them on a lightly buttered baking sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes. Remove and cool on cooling rack.
