Mother’s Day Coffee Biscuits

Prep time: 20 minutes

Bake time: 20 minutes

Makes: 24 biscuits


300g plain flour

200g ground almonds

 30g caster sugar

1 sachet of yeast

25g butter

Zest of 1 lemon

Zest of 1 Orange

2 eggs

100g blackcurrants

150g pistachios

1 tsp cinnamon

150ml sweet wine



Mix together the flour, ground almonds, sugar and yeast, rub in the butter with your fingers then add the rest of the ingredients and bring together until the mixture forms a dough.

Shape into an oblong shape and about an inch high and place onto a lined baking tray, brush with egg wash.

Bake at 180 for 15-20 mins until golden brown.

Leave to cool then slice into biscuits, as thick as you like, but I like mine slightly less than a finger thick is recommended.

For a harder coffee biscuit, put the sliced biscuits as a single layer on a baking tray and bake for 5 more minutes, or to your liking.
