Try baking these cinnamon and ginger spiced biscuits. Traditionally these are eaten at the Dutch festival “Sinterklaas” on 5th December.


160 grams Plain White Flour
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Ground Ginger
1 tsp Mixed Spice
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 pinch Salt
100 grams Unsalted Butter
70 grams Molasses Sugar
4 tsp Milk


  1. Pre heat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/Gas 4.
  2. In a large mixing bowl rub in the flour and butter using the tips of your fingers until you create a very fine crumble.
  3. Add all the other ingredients to the bowl and mix until it comes together as a dough.
  4. Once combined turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface and roll the dough out to a thickness of about 2/3cm.
  5. Using an 8cm cookie cutter, cut discs from the dough and place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  6. Place in the oven and bake the biscuits for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
