Want to find out how I made these yummy Festive Cinnamon Biscuits? Then keep on reading! I made a rather large batch that made about 30 biscuits but if you want to make a smaller batch then you can halve the list of ingredients below!
Things you will need:
– 300g Self Raising Flour
– 300g Plain Flour
– 3 Tablespoons of Ground Cinammon
– 250g Butter
– 200g Brown Sugar
– 2 Eggs
– 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
– Baking Paper
– Rolling Pin
– Cookie Cutter
Preheat oven to 160 degrees, 140 degrees (fan assisted), gas mark 3
As I made a larger batch than normal I ran out of bowl space quite quickly as you can see. To start off with I sieved the flour and cinnamon into the bowl and then in a separate bowl would mix the sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and butter. But as I couldn’t fit it all into one bowl I mixed them separately to begin with.
I then combined all of the ingredients together in the big bowl and mixed together. I found that mixing with the spoon to begin with until the flour had started to mix in and then using my hands for the rest of it worked best for me.
I then lined the baking trays with baking paper (greaseproof paper) to stop the biscuits from sticking to the tray while baking.
Next, I covered the chopping board with flour (or worksurface) in preparation for rolling out the mixture.
After rolling out the mixture I used a circle cookie cutter to make the shapes of the biscuits. I went for a circle as this would allow me more space to decorate and draw fun designs. But you can use whatever shapes you like for you biscuits!
Then I placed them into the oven for 15 minutes. You can pop them into the oven for between 10 and 15 minutes depending on how think you cut the shapes out.
After the time has elapsed I left them to cool for a bit before icing!
For my decoration I chose to use this Gold Shimmer Spray from Dr Oetker to make the biscuits gold, I believe they do this in a silver aswell. However, you don’t have to cover yours in shimmer spray if you don’t want to, its completely up to you.
And lastly, to finish it off I decorated the biscuits with cute little Christmas designs
