Gran’s brown biscuits

Andrea uses the same Christmas recipes she wrote when she was a child - every year.


Gran’s brown biscuits

500g butter

500g white sugar

335g golden syrup

1 kg plain wheat flour

125g blanched and chopped almonds

15g potash

7g ground cloves

25g ground cinnamon

Candied citrus peel and candied orange peel, to taste

Chopped peel from 3 organic or untreated lemons  

This is what you do:

Mix butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan and bring slowly to a boil.

Dissolve the potash in a little boiling water and blend it into the butter/sugar mixture.

Sift the spices into the flour and then add the lemon peel.

Knead the flour and sugar together and roll out the dough into long ‘sausages’. Chill or freeze the dough for a couple of hours. This makes it easier to cut the dough into slices.

I adore thin, crispy brown biscuits, so I always slice them very thinly and then go over them with the rolling pin with a light touch to make them even thinner. But it’s a matter of personal taste.

Place the biscuits on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake them in the oven for approx. 4-5 minutes at 190-200° C. Keep an eye on them because they bake very quickly!


Bon appetit!
