I've got LOADS of recipes squirrelled away to try out - the key criteria when I was picking one out last weekend was that it had to be melt and mix since my hand mixers are out of action (!) so there was no chance of a proper butter/sugar creaming.
The recipe is based on this one, but I changed it up a bit with spices and molasses (which I found tricky to get my hands on, but SO worth it!).
The biscuits are lovely and crisp, and taste a lot like traditional Danish brunkager (which makes sense, since now I look at the brunkager recipe they are really very similar.)
Here's the recipe =)
1. Set your oven to 170C
2. In a saucepan melt:
- 125g unsalted butter
- 100g dark brown sugar
- 4 tbsp molasses
3. In a largish bowl mix together:
- 325g plain flour
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1 tbsp ground ginger
- 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
- 1/2 tsp salt
4. Let the butter/sugar/molasses mix cool, then add to the dry ingredients and mix into a dough. I found the dough quite oily - maybe the butter and molasses didn't mix or something?
5. Roll thinish (don't worry too much - mine varied between probably about 3mm and 6mm, and all of them worked out fine - just roll them as thinly as you think you'd like) and cut out.
6. Bake, in batches, for 9-10 minutes until light golden brown.
7. Enjoy! =)
