Servings 20
Prep Time 35 mins
Cook Time 12 mins

Equipment

  • Food processor with beater hook
  • Rolling Pin
  • Biscuit cutter OR sharp knife
  • Airtight wrap for resting in fridge
  • Baking trays

Ingredients
  

  • 100 grams unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar (165 grams)
  • 1/4 cup golden syrup (90 grams)
  • 60 grams wholemeal flour
  • 1 3/4 cups plain flour, sifted (260 grams)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tsp Oz El Hanout
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg

Instructions
 

  • Place butter, sugar and golden syrup in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until pale and creamy. Set aside.
  • Mix baking powder, spices, salt, plain flour, and wholemeal flour in a bowl until well combined.
  • With the electric mixer on medium speed, add egg to butter mixture, beating until just combined.
  • Gradually add flour mixture and beat until just combined. Don't over-beat, or you'll make the biscuits tough.
  • If you're making sliced bikkies, roll into a tube or sausage shape. If you're rolling out and cutting into shapes, flatten into a disc.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to rest; don’t worry if it still feels soft.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C and line 2 large oven trays or 4 small ones with baking paper.
  • Roll out dough to about 5mm thick and cut into shapes, or cut 5mm thick slices from the roll.
    Thicker biscuits are chewier; thinner are crispy and more gingernut-like.
  • Place biscuits on lined trays, leaving 3cm between each one.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, swapping trays halfway, or until golden.
  • Set aside to cool on a wire rack.

Notes

Biscuits will keep in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Delicious with mulled wine in winter. Amazing for dunking in tea or coffee. Try with a Caysha coffee!
