  • Preheat oven to 180 C.
  • Cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
  • Add treacle, golden syrup and egg and mix together well.
  • Sift flour, salt, spices and bicarbonate of soda together in a separate bowl.
  • Add dry ingredients to the wet and combine thoroughly.
  • Pinch off pieces of dough the size of a walnut and roll into a ball.
  • Roll the dough ball into granulated sugar to coat and place on an ungreased baking tray. Press down lightly with the palm of your hand to flatten.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes until lightly browned. Allow to cool a few minutes on the baking tray before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


Biscuits freeze and defrost well. They will also keep for up to a week in an airtight container.
