TOP TIP: If you want to add a bit of sophistication and an extra dose of the Scottish feel to your biscuit, sprinkle in dried lavender. We recommend using 2 teaspoons of dried lavender and mix in with the rest of the ingredients.


Ingredients
  • 90g unsalted butter
  • 40g golden caster sugar
  • 85g Scottish heather honey
  • 110g plain white flour
  • 60g corn flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • Icing to decorate (optional)

Method
  1. Measure out all the ingredients and whizz in a good food processor until a soft ball of dough forms
  2. Using cling film or a small airtight container, wrap the dough and place in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes, or until the the dough is firm enough to roll
  3. Sprinkle flour on to a source and roll the dough. You’re looking for about 5-8mm thickness. Cut the dough into your desired shapes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 160 celsius degree fan.
  5. Transfer the biscuits to a lined baking tray and pop back into the fridge to chill for another 10 minutes.
  6. Place the tray in the oven to bake for approximately 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the biscuit are pale golden.
  7. Once ready, resist tucking in and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Dollop a wee bit of creative into your afternoon and decorate the biscuit with colourful icing with your Easter designs!
