      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

    For the cookies, Thermomix Method:
  1. Heat the oven to 160°c fan
    Weigh all the ingredients into the TM Bowl except the currants. MC in Set for 10 seconds/speed 6
    Add the currants and set on reverse speed 6 seconds/speed 5

    This mix will be crumbly don't add anything to it. Remove the mix from the bowl and knead a little in your hand to soften (if you've followed my instructions your butter will still really cold and for these cookies that's ideal). Watch the video if that helps. Portion into 20 g balls if you want them all the same size and press flat

    Using the round end of circle cutters gently press into the biscuits to make the spiral patters. Or find something around the house, small jar tops or shot glasses?

    Bake for 12 – 15 mins remove from the trays and allow to cool on cooling racks
  2. For the topping Melt the chocolate in the microwave or over a bain-marie. I don’t use the TM here; it’s only 100 g of chocolate, you’ll lose most of that on the blades. I used my microwave. 30 seconds then 5-second bursts stirring in-between add your red gel when the texture is right and mix to combine, Use a tsp to apply dots of chocolate on top of your cookies. Allow to set.


I like to use cold butter when making these cookies because if the butter is too warm (and you’ve weighed out the cookies to 20g balls) they may spread in the oven. It’s a little pastry chef tip for using the TM.

The mix will be crumbly straight out of the Thermomix. Trust me when I say it’s supposed to be like, it works better for these cookies. I have a video on my site if you'd like to see that first.

    Thanks for a great recipe! Used to love these so it's great to be able to have them again. Just about to make them for the second time because I finally bought some currants. First batch made without but still delicious 😋

    I loved these! My hubby and kids weren't a fan but that's because they are a sophisticated biscuit with spice and flavour (not all about the sugar). Thanks for the recipe.
