Moose maple butter biscuits.
Food gifts are the best. Food gifts made by friends are the best of the best. Last weekend not only did I spend a glorious few hours in the most wonderful foodie company Farrah gave us all a parting gift. A tub of Moose Maple Butter. I love it. On toast, crumpets, with bacon and waffles it is divine. You know I love to bake too, so I also love to use it (sparingly) in bakes. I have made Pecan and moose maple shortbread before. Now it was time for cookies. I have deliberately made these cookies small. A little maple bite is enough, and then you can have a second without feeling guilty!
Moose maple butter biscuits
125 g very soft maple moose butter
25 g icing sugar
115 g plain flour
25 g cornflour
1 small cookie cutter (mine was maple leaf shaped but any shape will do.)
- Makes at least 24 small cookies.
- Preheat the oven to 190c or Gas 5
- Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
- Beat together the butter and the icing sugar. Use a mixer or a beater as using a spoon will take forever.
- Sift in the flours and beat into the creamed mixture.
- Take the mixture and chill for 30 minutes.
- On a lightly floured surface roll out until about the thickness of a pound coin.
- Stamp out as many little biscuits as possible.
- Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, check as every oven differs.
- Cool on the paper for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack. These are sturdy litle bits, ideal for a treat with a cup of tea.
