  • 140g Plain White Flour, Plus extra for dusting
  • 40g Doves Farm Brown Rice Flour
  • 140g Low Fat Spread, Softened
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 1 teaspoons Cardamom Pods, 6 pods. Seeds removed and crushed.
  • 3/4 level teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 level teaspoons Cloves, Whole or Ground, (Ground)
  • 1/2 level teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • 6 level teaspoons Icing Sugar


  1. Put the flours and low-fat spread in a small bowl. Rub the two together with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and spices until combined.
  2. Turn the mixture onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until it comes together into a dough. Using a rolling pin, roll to 3-4mm thick. Stamp out 16 biscuits with a 9cm flower cutter (or similar shape), then, using a 3cm round cutter, stamp out a hole in the middle of each biscuit; you’ll need to reroll the trimmings.
  3. Carefully transfer the biscuits to a large baking sheet lined with baking paper and chill for 30 minutes, until the biscuit dough is completely firm. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6.
  4. Transfer the baking sheet and cookie dough to the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes until the biscuits are golden, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  5. To make the icing, mix the sugar with the cinnamon, ½ tbsp water and 1-2 drops of yellow food colouring (optional), until you have a smooth glaze. Drizzle the glaze over the biscuits; alternatively, dip the biscuit tops in the icing. Return the biscuits to the cooling rack to firm up before serving.
