  • Step 1

    Mix the butter, sea salt and brown sugar until well combined. Add the maple syrup and mix.

  • Step 2

    Add the milk and mix again. Fold in the plain flour.

  • Step 3

    Once all the ingredients are combined, wrap the dough in cling film and rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Roll out the dough to 4mm (3/16”) thick, using marzipan spacers as a guide if necessary. Chill the sheet of biscuit dough in the fridge for one hour until firm.

  • Step 5

    Remove the dough from the fridge and cut out 30 circles using a 4cm (1¾”) round cutter, then emboss a circle just inside the outer edge with a 2.5cm (1”) cutter. Make two or four tiny holes in the centre of each biscuit using a small piping nozzle.

  • Step 6

    Bake the biscuits at 170°C/340°F/gas mark 3½ for 16–20 minutes.

    Top Tip
    If you are making these biscuits for favours or as a gift, thread a narrow ribbon through several biscuits and tie in a bow before wrapping in tissue paper or cellophane.
