Serves 1 - 12 Biscuits

These biscuits are really easy to make and have a lovely subtle cardamom spice flavour. You can top them with a thin layer of icing or leave them plain and enjoy them warm out of the oven. (They make a really pretty present too!)

  • 150g self raising flour
  • 75g butter
  • 50g golden caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground cardamom
  • 1 egg
  • Golden icing sugar and a little water (optional)


    1. Rub the butter and flour together until it forms small breadcrumbs. Then add the caster sugar and ground cardamom. Beat the egg in a separate bowl and add 2 tablespoons of it to the dry ingredients (you can keep the rest of the egg for another recipe)
    2. Mix the ingredients together until they form a soft dough. Then wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for around 30 mins.
    3. Once the dough has chilled roll out on a floured surface so that it is around half a cm thick and cut into rounds using a biscuit cutter. Place the biscuits on to a greased baking sheet (it should make around 12 biscuits) and bake at 180c for 10-15mins.
    4. Allow the biscuits to cool. I decided to ice mine using golden icing sugar and a little water. I waited until the biscuits were cold and then spread the icing on to them using a pastry brush to get a thin layer of glazed icing.

Lovely tasting biscuits with a pleasing crunch to them. I cut them out into little bunny shapes for Easter, and dipped their ears in chocolate, delicious!

Baked these today, easy & quick and very delicious (doubled the quantity with no problem) however did take 5 - 10 minutes longer to bake than suggested, could be my old oven. Will certainly bake these again but not to frequently as I'd scoff the lot, not good for my waistline!
