Speculative venture with biscuits
Orange & Speculaas BiscuitsI'm really taken with the Speculaas spice mix and have been trying it out with more recipes. Here's another take on Orange and Cinnamon Biscuits using the speculaas spice instead of Cinnamon. We love them even more as the flavour is even more intense.
Orange & Speculaas Biscuits
2 tsps cinnamon
8oz/225g self raising flour4oz/110g butter
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp golden syrup
1oz/25g soft brown sugar
1 egg beaten
Zest and juice of 1 orange
Sift the flour into a bowl and mix in the cinnamon. Melt the butter, honey, golden syrup in a pan with the sugar. Allow to cool slightly and then add this to the flour. Add the beaten egg and then the orange zest and juice. Mix well to combine. Place small teaspoonfuls of the mixture on baking trays about 5 cms/2 inches apart. Bake in a preheated oven 180C/Mark 4/350F for 10-12 minutes until brown at the edges. The mixture makes around 30 biscuits.
Meryl’s tip : These biscuits are very tempting and last well for a few days if you can resist! Let me know what you think. And try Grandma's Overnight Cake with speculaas too.
