Cinnamon nut biscuits

  • Makes about 50
Cinnamon nut biscuits

These large flat biscuts are thin and crisp and are ideal either by themselves or served with poached fruits as a dessert.


  • 250 grams butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 70 gram packet pecans


  1. Melt the butter over a moderate heat and stir in the sugar. Remove from the heat and let it cool for 5 minutes. Beat in the eggs.
  2. Sift together the flour, salt and cinnamon and stir into the mixture.
  3. Put heaped teaspoonfuls on greased baking trays and press a pecan into the centre of each. Leave room because these biscuits will spread.
  4. Bake at 200ÂșC for 10 minutes until the biscuits have turned a deep brown. Cool on a cake rack and store in an airtight container.

Cooks Tips

- You can use other spices like nutmeg, mixed spice, cardamom or ginger, and walnuts instead of pecans.
