Bjorn’s Honey Biscuits

by Betty Bee


A bear once said ” A very nearly tea is one you forget about afterwards”. These simple but versatile biscuits will delight you with a cup of tea,  a scoop of vanilla ice cream or even a slice of goats cheese. Just keep them away from bears who like honey…..

Serves 4

125 g plain flour

125 g caster sugar

70 g honey

2 eggs

10 g butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Centigrade or Gas Mark 6.  Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper and brush with the melted butter.

In a large bowl beat the eggs with the sugar until thick and pale. Add the honey and then incorporate the flour. Mix well until a smooth dough has been formed. Leave the dough to rest n the refrigerator for atleast half an hour.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface until approximately half a centimeter thick. Using a pastry cutter, stamp out rounds. Place the rounds on the prepared baking sheet, leaving space for each one to spread whilst cooking.

Bake for twelve to fifteen minutes. When the biscuits are golden brown remove the tray from the oven. Place the biscuits on a cooling rack, making  sure to keep the doors and windows shut to protect your biscuits from stray bears.
