Almond biscuits

These are a follow up from the Kransekake I made (https://cookingfortheloveofit.wordpress.com/?s=Kransekake). I had some of the dough left over and froze it, it freezes well! So decided to make some biscuits.

I rolled out the dough and used a 2” cutter then baked them at gas 6 (200C) for 10 minutes.

For the filling I used 112g icing sugar, 50g softened butter and 3 tablespoons of Amaretto, beaten well together then sandwiched the biscuits together. It made 12 biscuits.

Are they good? Oh yeahhhhhh!!

 

Lemon and White Chocolate Biscuits September 3, 2012

Ingredients

 

125g butter, softened

125g caster sugar

1 tsp lemon extract

1 egg

450g plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 Tbsp milk

300g white chocolate

 

Method

 

Pre heat oven to 170C/gas mark 3. Line two – three baking sheets with baking parchment.

Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl until pale and creamy. Add the lemon extract and beat for a further 30 seconds. Beat in the egg until just combined. In a separate bowl combine the flour and baking powder. Mix into the butter mixture, adding enough of the milk to make a dough. Chill for 45 minutes.

Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about 4mm/¼in thick. Using a 6-cm (2½ in) round cutter, cut the dough into rounds then transfer on to the prepared trays.

Bake for 15–18 minutes, or until lightly golden. Allow to cool slightly then transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely. When cool, melt the chocolate in the microwave, 30 seconds at a time.  Half dip the biscuits into the chocolate then leave to set on baking parchment in a cool place.

Whipped Shortbread Biscuits April 29, 2012

Although these biscuits have the flavour of classic shortbread, the texture is much lighter. They literally melt in the mouth which makes them ideal for children. Although, for a smarter looking biscuit which is more appealing to adults, spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle and pipe the biscuits onto the baking sheet.

 

Ingredients

 

225g/8oz butter, slightly softened

75g/3oz icing sugar

175g/6oz plain flour

50g/2oz icing sugar

2 – 3 tsp lemon juice

sugar strands, chocolate drops, hundreds and thousands or silver balls

 

Method

 

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4.

Line baking sheets with baking parchment.

Cream the butter and icing sugar until fluffy

Gradually add the flour and continue beating for a further 2 – 3 minutes until its smooth and light.

Roll into balls and place on the baking sheet and bake for 8 – 10 minutes until just lightly browned.

Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Sift the icing sugar into a small bowl. Add the lemon juice and blend until a smooth icing forms.

Using a small spoon put a little icing on each of the biscuits and before it sets dip them into the  sugar strands, chocolate drops, hundreds and thousands or silver balls.

 

 

Honey and Chocolate Biscuits

Try different types of honey to vary the flavour of the biscuits.

 

Ingredients

 

60g/2 1/2 oz caster sugar

15g/1/2 oz butter

125g/4oz honey

1 egg, beaten

pinch of salt

1 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground cloves

225g/8oz plain flour, sifted

1/2 tsp baking powder

75g/3 oz milk chocolate

 

Method

 

Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/gas mark 7, 10 minutes before baking.

Line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment.

Heat the sugar and honey together in a small saucepan until everything has melted and the mixture is smooth.

Remove from the heat and stir until slightly cooled, then add the beaten egg with the salt and beat well.

Stir in the ginger, cinnamon, cloves and the flour with the baking powder and mix well until a dough is formed.

Wrap in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 45 minutes.

Place the chilled dough on a floured surface, roll out to about 5 mm/1/4 ins thickness and cut out small shapes.

Place onto the prepared baking sheets and bake for 8 – 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly, before moving onto a cooling rack.

Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Alternatively, melt the chocolate in the microwave, carefully, until smooth.

Either spread the melted chocolate over the biscuits or dip them in it, leave on baking parchment until completely set.
