Caraway Biscuits 2

This is an old English recipe for caraway biscuits.

Compared to my first recipe for caraway biscuits it has a higher butter content and fewer caraway seeds. (you can always add more).

Ingredients

  • 270g plain flour
  • 225g butter
  • 200g granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of caraway seeds
  • 1 egg – beaten

Method

  • Pre-heat the oven to GM2 – 150°C.
  • Flour two baking trays.
  • Rub the butter into the flour so you get fine breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in the sugar and caraway seeds.
  • Mix in enough of the egg to form a soft dough.
  • Roll the dough out to 1cm thickness.
  • Use an 8cm cutter to cut out the biscuits.
  • Re-roll the cast of dough and make more biscuits.
  • Bake for 30 – 35 minutes until light golden brown.
  • Leave on the tray on a wire rack.

I love cooking and baking. I love trying out new recipes and currently am trying out many old favourites from my Polish cookbooks and family recipes. I am trying out many variations, often to make them easier but still delicious. I collect glass cake stands and china tableware, mainly tea plates, jugs and serving dishes, many of which I use on a daily basis. They are an eclectic mixture from the 20th & 21st century.
