Inspired by Kirsten Hoddle my Nana, baked by me

These biscuits are traditionally baked in Denmark for Christmas, however with a similar taste and texture to shortbread these biscuits are the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea or coffee all year round.

Makes 72

What you will need
  • 400g softened butter
  • 130g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 450g flour
  • 1/2 baking powder
  • 1/2 bicarbonate of soda
  • 100g ground almonds

  • Baking paper
  • Star nozzle and piping bag or cookie press

Pre-heat the oven to 180C / Gas mark 4

To make the biscuits
  • In a large bowl beat together the butter and sugar, until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg, and then once combined add the vanilla extract.
  • Sift the flour, baking power, bicarbonate of soda and ground almonds into the wet mixture, to form a soft dough.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface and lightly knead until the dough is smooth and no longer sticky.
  • Using a star piping nozzle and piping bag or cookie press, form 5cm diameter rings onto baking paper sheets.
  • Bake biscuits on the middle shelf for 10 minutes, until golden brown, and allow to cool on a wire rack before serving.
