I first made these biscuits when I was trying to find something cinnamon to go in one of my foodie penpals parcels. They are totally coated in cinnamon sugar yet it isn’t too overpowering – they are very moreish!
Ingredients (makes approx. 30)
- 200 g butter
- 200 g caster sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla (optional)
- 1 egg
- 425 g plain flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to gas mark 6/200C/400F.
- Cream together the butter & sugar (I did it by hand).
- Add the egg and beat well until combined. If you are using vanilla add this also. I find that these biscuits taste lovely without though.
- Add the flour and work to a dough.
- For the cinnamon sugar – mix the sugar & cinnamon until well combined.
- Line a baking tray with baking paper and from the ball of dough, taking a palm sized piece at a time, roll into a ball and then roll in the cinnamon sugar.
- Place each ball onto the tray and pat down slightly (they don’t need to be too far apart as this dough doesn’t really spread).
- Stamp each biscuit pressing until flat (you may find you need to press a little hard to get the full imprint).
- Bake for 8 minutes, until lightly brown around the edges.
- Leave to cool for 5 minutes then remove onto a cooling rack.
