Ingredients
  • 115 g /4oz butter
  • 75 g /3oz caster sugar + extra for topping
  • 1 egg separated
  • 200 g /7oz GF flour I use Wholegrain Fairy Flour
  • 4 drops of cassia oil if you have no oil you can substitute with 1 tsp mixed spice, 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 70 g raisins/currants/mixed fruit
Instructions
  1. Instructions
  2. Beat the butter, sugar and yolk together
  3. Add the dry ingredients and raisins or currants to make a soft dough
  4. Knead dough on a floured surface - you'll need cold hands for this as the dough is very soft.
  5. roll out dough to about 5mm think
  6. Using a cutter cut approximately 20 biscuits
  7. Pop in an oven at 200C/400F/Gas 6 for 10 mins
  8. After 10mins take out and brush with beaten egg white, then sprinkle with sugar and return to oven for a further 5 mins
  9. Warning: these biscuits are very fragile when hot/warm, try to allow them to cool for as long as possible before removing to a cooling rack - therefore a good non-stack baking tray in a MUST! Even better, use a silicone baking sheet on your tray.
