  1. Cream butter and sugar until soft and creamy, mix in other ingredients until a smooth soft dough is formed.
  2. Shape dough into two rolls of 3-5 cm diameter.
  3. Leave dough to rest 30 minutes in fridge for the spice flavor to develop.
  4. Cut dough in 1 cm rounds and place on 2 lightly greased cookie sheets, with space for spreading.
  5. Alternatively you can also roll the dough out flat and cut out shapes.
  6. Bake at 180C for about 15 minutes or until cooked.
  7. Transfer to cooling rack or a cold cookie sheet until cold.


You can press crushed nuts, slivered almonds or a walnut on top of biscuits before baking.
