      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    To make the biscuits
  1. Place flour, butter and cinnamon in bowl and mix 5 seconds speed 6 until combined.
  2. Add sugar, syrup and egg and mix 30 seconds speed 3 until mixture comes together.
  3. 2 minutes then remove from bowl and wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 180°C and grease and line 4 trays.
  5. Roll dough between two sheets of baking paper until 5mm thick. Using a 6cm round cutter, cut rounds from dough and place on baking tray. Bake 8-10 minutes until firm. Allow to cool completely on trays before icing.
  6. Icing
  7. Place icing sugar and juice in a small bowl and mix until you get the right consistency (easy enough to spread onto biscuits but not so runny that it would run off them!). You could do this in the thermomix but I use a small bowl instead so I can keep an eye on the consistency.
  8. Spread icing onto cooled biscuits and decorate with mint leaves and M&M's/Smarties/Jaffas. I always use Jaffas so I don't have to buy a whole lot of M&M's or Smarties just so I can get red ones!
  9. When icing has set, store in an airtight container with baking paper between the layers.

Use the spatula to get the dough out of the bowl. My son reckons Christmas doesn't start until I've made these!
