Any homebaking has a bit of love in it – perfect for Valentines day. The kids and I made these treats for my friends at work and for their teachers. They are a yummy crunchy treat and the colour is perfect for white icing decorations.
Recipe (from The Best of Alison Holst)
225 gm soft butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups flour
2 Tbsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp mixed spice
Cream softened butter. Add remaining ingredients, mix to combine. Either roll out and cut shapes or make a long roll and wrap in plastic and refrigerate until firm and then cut thin slices. Bake at 180°C for 8-10 minutes or until biscuits darken slightly. When cool transfer from tray and decorate or just eat!
Note measurements are in metric – let me know if you want imperial measurements and I will work them out.
