raisin biscuits

raisin biscuits

oven: 200C/180C fan/gas 6


150g raisins
225g self raising flour
125g sugar
125g lard
70g oaty cereal
half a teaspoon of garam masala


Place all dry ingredients in a bowl, cut the lard into small cubes and add it in mixing with fingertips until you have a breadcrumb consistency. Then add enough water to make a dough which comes cleanly away from the sides of the bowl and which isn’t sticky to the touch. (approx 4 x 15ml tablespoons).

Roll out onto a floured surface to 4mm thick, and use a biscuit cutter to form biscuits. After you have cut lots of shapes, squidge the leftovers together, re roll and cut out more until all dough is used up.

Bake at gas mark 6 for 8 mins with this sized cookie cutter (We made 41 biscuits, so if you’ve made lots less, add a few mins cooking time!)

Make this sized batch twice in the month.
