Crisp, nutty biscuits are perfect for a coffee break – dunk if you dare! For convenience, make a big batch of the biscuit mix, store in the freezer and defrost when you get the urge to bake.

Preheat oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan.

Cream the butter and sugar, then add egg yolk and maple syrup.

Fold in flour and bind into a dough. Add the chopped walnuts and pecans.

Mould into 3 cylinder logs, each 18cm long and 5cm in diameter.

Wrap in clingfilm, place in fridge and chill for 1 hour.

To cook, cut into 5mm slices and bake on a greaseproof papered tray for 10-12 minutes until slightly golden around the edge.

Dust with caster sugar, or leave as they are. Allow to chill before serving.


The biscuits are great with a cup of coffee or tea – or as an indulgent accompaniment to a bowl of ice cream.
