Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 180'C, grease two baking trays.

    Place flour, baking powder, salt, spices and sugar in TM31 and blitz for 10 seconds on speed 6.

    Add the butter and blitz for 10 seconds on speed 6.

    Add the milk and heat for 30 seconds, 37'C on speed 3. 

    Turn the dough out onto your Thermomat and knead enough to mix any remaining dry bits in.

    Roll out to about 3mm think. 

    Cut into 6½cm circles using a cookie cutter, or you could just cut the dough into 5cm squares. 

    Arrange on the prepared trays and press almonds into the top.

    Bake for 20 minutes. Cookies are ready when they are nicely brown.

    Transfer to wire racks to cool before storing in airtight containers.
