Christmas Spicy Biscuits - Speculoos


250g flour (I use about 60% wholemeal)
150g butter
140g coconut sugar
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 tsp speculoos spices (either get a mix in Belgium from Dille & Kamille or it is a mix of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, coriander, cardamon)
4 dessert spoons almond milk

... quite handy to have an elf helper too!



- preheat the oven to 170 degrees

- sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and spices into a large bowl

- cut the butter into small squares and add to the bowl - rub it into the mixture


- add the milk and mix together into a ball 

- roll out the pasty (using some extra flour to stop sticking) and put out shapes with a pastry cutter... here you definitely need elf help


- Place biscuits on grease proof paper/baking paper on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 10-15 mins. 


- Cool them on a wire tray - at this moment they will become crunchy
