Christmas Biscuits

The Christmas season can involve people and family calling around to your home and you may feel obliged to have biscuits for guests. If you buy the sugary ones, it can be hard to resist them yourself. As well as that, a little of something can be just perfect but the shop bought biscuits can be big and easily 100 kcals each.

Ingredients

Makes 35 small biscuits

60g butter

1 egg, medium

60g Ground Almonds/almond flour

30g Coconut Flour

10g, 2 teaspoons Stevia Erylite

2 to 3 teaspoons ground ginger

2 teaspoons cinnamon

20ml, 4 teaspoons Chicory Syrup

30g, almond bits

Method

Pre-heat the oven to 180 and place a sheet of baking paper on a flat baking tray

Melt the butter

Mix the almond and coconut flour with the sweetener, ground spices  and almond bits

Add the butter and the egg to the flour and use a spatula to mix well. You get a nice brownish mixture.

Roll it into a ball and place it between 2 wide pieces of baking paper.

Using a rolling pen, roll it out flat, roll in all directions so the mixture is even in thickness

Now dip a fork into the 20ml of chicory syrup and drizzle it over the top of the flattened mixture.

Using a small biscuit cutter, cut out 35 little circles or alternatively, roll 35 small little balls and then drizzle them with chicory syrup

They bake in 10 minutes. Watch them closely as they can burn fast

Cool them on a wire tray when you take them out of the oven. They are not crunchy at this point so wait until they are cold before you taste them.

You can add vanilla extract or the Neil &Massey orange extracts or you can the rind of an organic orange or lemon.
