Honey Snap Biscuits
  1. Sift the flour, baking soda, salt and spices together. Set aside. Beat the butter until creamy. Add sugar and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the egg and the honey and beat until well combined. Fold in the dry ingredients to form a dough.
  2. Wrap the mixture in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray. Flour the benchtop. Using half of the dough at a time, roll it out to a thickness of about 3 mm, lightly flouring the benchtop as needed.
  4. Cut out biscuits using a floured cookie cutter. Places the biscuits on the prepared tray. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes or until just starting to brown and feel firm. Allow to cool on the trays until crisp.
  5. Makes about 90 biscuits (using a 6 cm round scalloped cookie cutter)
  1. Ground mixed spice is traditionally a sweet spice mix (used in xmas pudding) which can have a number of different spices in it. The one we use has a mixture of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg, but it could be a combination of any three or more of those spices, including ginger and cloves.
