  • 4 oz butter
  • 4 oz sugar
  • 2 oz golden syrup
  • 1 oz finely chopped blanched almonds
  • 1 oz finely chopped candied peel
  • teaspoon ground cloves
  • teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 8 oz flour

  • How To Cook:
    1. Put the butter, sugar and syrup into a saucepan and heat gently; when the mixture reaches boiling point, remove it from the heat.

    2. Stir in the almonds, peel, cloves, cinnamon and ginger.

    3. Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in a very little water and stir into the ingredients in the pan; cool the mixture until lukewarm.

    4. Gradually stir in the sieved flour, using a wooden spoon.

    5. Turn on to a floured board and form into a roll about 2 inches in diameter, wrap in aluminum foil or greaseproof paper and keep in the refrigerator or a cool place overnight.

    6. Using a sharp knife, slice the dough as thinly as possible.

    7. Place the biscuits on a greased baking tray and bake in a moderately hot oven (400F) until they begin to brown about 8 - 10 minutes.

    8. Remove carefully with a palette knife, cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight tin.

    9. These are wafer-crisp, nutty biscuits, with a subtle, spicy flavor.
