Made with sugar and spice and all things nice! These
beautiful looking biscuits are a classic favourite for afternoon
tea, children's parties or as a treat for any occasion
and will be loved by all.
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Place the butter, brown sugar and vanilla essence into a
large bowl. Beat until the mixture is thick and creamy. Add
the egg and continue beating until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Add the sifted flour, Gregg's Cinnamon, Gregg's Mixed Spice,
Gregg's Ground Ginger and baking powder. Mix until the mixture
forms a smooth dough.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 4 mm thick.
Cut out biscuits using a 6 cm fluted cutter. Place the biscuits
onto baking trays lined with baking paper. Press remaining dough
together and roll out again, continuing until you have
approximately 40 biscuits.
Bake in batches in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes or
until they are light golden. Stand for 5 minutes before cooling on
a wire rack.
To make the icing, sift the icing sugar into a bowl. Add the
milk, butter and enough colouring to make a pale pink icing.
Spread half of the biscuits with jam. Sandwich with the
remaining biscuits. Spread the icing over the top biscuit. Sprinkle
with Gregg's Raspberry Jelly crystals.
