Spicy Fruit Biscuits Recipe

Find Recipes invites you to try Spicy Fruit Biscuits Recipe

175g/6oz butter, softened
175g/6oz brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 egg
250g/9oz plain flour, sifted
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking powder
100g/4oz mincemeat

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas mark 4. Line two baking trays with baking parchment. Using a hand-held mixer, cream the butter and sugar together in a small bowl until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla essence and egg, and beat until well combined. Transfer to a large bowl and add the sifted flour, mixed spice, ginger and baking powder. Using a knife, mix to a soft dough. Gather together, then divide the mixture into two portions. Roll one portion out into a rectangle about 3mm/ 1/8in thick, and trim the edges. Repeat with the other dough portion. Chill both until just firm. Spread each dough rectangle with mincemeat, then roll up like a Swiss roll. Cut the rolls into slices about 1cm/ 1/2in thick. Put on the prepared trays, leaving space between each slice. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden. Cool on the trays for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
