DIRECTIONS

  • Sift the flour, baking powder, spices and a pinch of salt together.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, then gradually beat in the egg.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Add a tsp of cold water to bring the dough together if you need to.
  • Press into a disc, wrap in clear wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • Heat the oven to 356°F (180°C / gas mark 4).
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to the thickness of a coin and using cookie cutters, cut-out shapes. Prick tops lightly with a fork. Lift onto parchment-lined baking sheets or well-greased baking sheets.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until pale golden in color.
  • Leave to stand for a few minutes, then cool on a wire rack.
  • If desired when cold, sandwich 2 biscuits together with jam, and drizzle light icing/glaze over tops.
