Festive Baking | Speculoos Reindeer Biscuits

Friday, December 8

The festive baking has started early this year - I was searching for some inspiration on Instagram so now my discover page is full of the cutest looking bakes. Including this adorable sandwich biscuits with speculoos spice and biscoff. I don't make biscuits very often so forget how easy they are but the fun of these is all in the decoration. 

You will need:

125g of soft butter                          125g caster sugar 

300g plain flour                              1 medium egg

1 tablespoon of Coco Powder  

Speculoos Spice (1 tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of ground ginger & 1/2 tsp of nutmeg)

1 tablespoon of Icing Sugar            Biscoff Spread            

Red Ball Decorations                     

Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl until it forms a dough. If it seems a little dry then add a splash of milk to get a smooth dough. 

I don't have circular cutters so I used the top of a mason jar to cut circles - be careful to cut an even amount because you will sandwich them together later. On half the circles I used a pipping nozzle to cut of some reindeer noses. 

Bake in the oven at 200°C for 10-12 minutes. You'll know they are baked when they start to brown at the edges - remove them from the oven and transfer somewhere they can cool. 

On the tops of the biscuits (with the nose hole) use a sieve to sprinkle them with icing sugar. I used a small amount of biscoff and a pipping bag to do the antlers which was a bit of a faff so you might be able to find something black/brown in the baking isle. 

Next, spread a layer of biscoff on the bottoms on the biscuits, sandwich them together and finish with a red ball for the nose. 

These went down really well with my colleagues at work so I'm thinking about making more to take round to my neighbours with their Christmas cards.
