Cooking time

6 mins 


Serves

50 biscuits

 

Ingredients 

1 cup brown sugar, tightly packed

⅓ cup water

⅓ cup honey

250g of butter, cubed

1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

1 Tbsp ground ginger

1 tsp ground cloves

½ tsp grated orange rind

½ tsp ground cardamom

1½ tsp baking soda

3½ cups plain flour

 

Method

  • Mix flour, spices, orange rind and baking soda in a bowl.
  • Warm the honey, sugar, and water in a pot over medium heat, stir until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and add the butter and stir until melted.
  • Add half of the flour mixture to the pot and stir until incorporated, stir in the rest of the flour mixture.
  • Once fully combined, form dough into a log and wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  • Take dough out and let rest at room temperature for about 15 minutes before rolling out to about 3mm in thickness on a baking paper using a lightly floured rolling pin.
  • Cut out biscuits with cookie cutters placing buscuits about 2cm apart.
  • Place baking paper with biscuits on a baking tray and bake on a middle rack until slightly browned - about 6-8 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes on baking tray before transferring to wire rack to cool completely before decorating or eating.
