Description:
I’ve made these for years, particularly over Christmas. When I didn’t have mixed spice (thank Michelle!!), I used a mix of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove. The recipe is versatile that way. I let my nose tell me when I had the right mix of spices. The cloves are meant to be whole for this recipe and pressed into the top as decoration. I like to taste the clove, though, so I use ground clove in the biscuit, about half a teaspoon.Oh… and biscuits are cookies!

Ingredients:
125g soft butter (4oz)
200ml sugar (1 cup)
1 egg, beaten
50ml syrup (1/4 cup)
750ml flour (3 cups)
5ml bicarb. (1 tsp baking soda)
2ml salt (pinch)
5ml ground cinnamon (1 tsp)
10ml ground mixed spice (2 tsp)
cloves

Directions:
Cream butter, sugar, egg and syrup.
Sift dry ingredients and add.
Mix into a ball, pinch off pieces and place on greased baking sheet.
Bake at 180°C for 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
Store in airtight container for a day or two for flavour to develop (waiting can be a problem though).
