Have you watched me reading Honey Biscuits in the Video Resources section of our website? Well here is the recipe and method featured in that book:
The ingredients for Honey Biscuits from this book are:
120g softened butter
1 large tablespoon honey
1 egg yolk
1 level teaspoon cinnamon
180g self-raising flour
1 tablespoon sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon combined on a plate
And here’s what you need to do:
Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until they are creamy
Mix in the honey and then the egg yolk.
Add the cinnamon and the flour and mix into a soft dough. You may need to add a little more flour if the dough is too sticky. It will need to be a little sticky for the next step.
Shape teaspoonful pieces of the dough into balls and roll in the extra sugar and cinnamon mix.
Place on to a greased or lined baking tray and cook in an oven heated to 175oC for 12 to 15 minutes until they are golden brown.
Allow biscuits to cool a little before transferring them to a rack.
These biscuits are delicious and they will fill your house with a lovely smell while cooking too!
