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
Cinnamon sugar 
(You will find that this makes more than you need but you can save it for future. You can also add more/less sugar/cinnamon to your taste)
  • 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.
  • Enjoy!

  8. I love the biscuit stamps and now I want some! I have never seen anything like that over here in France though. Cinnamon biscuits sound good too – like home-made speculos biscuits that you often get with your cup of coffee in cafés. They also remind me of cinnamon toast that I used to eat when I was a student.
