3/4 t baking powder
pinch of salt
Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
Mix in the egg and enough milk to make a dough (i think it was about 2 tablespoons)
Roll out the dough until very thin and sprinkle liberally with cinnamon. Then roll up the dough from the longer side to form a log.
Then slice the roll up and smooth the dough into a round.
Bake for about 15 minutes at 180degrees C until just golden.
These are simple biscuits but they have a lovely flavour. The flavour reminds me of cinnamon pinwheel scones. They were also popular with the little one.
Just for interests sake i looked up a bit about rubbing in butter.
Rubbing in butter literally means to rub butter and flour (or other dry ingredients) between your finger until it is all mixed and looks like breadcrumbs. Rubbing in butter helps to make baking flaky, the colder the butter the more flaky and light the result.
I must admit to always softening the butter first by microwaving for a few seconds to make it easier to rub in.
Or you can make it even easier and pulse it in the food processor.
On other front's i just finished day 3 of the cleaning challenge and am enjoying how much easier it is to keep an area which is already tidy, clean. So far i have a nice and clean kitchen, bedroom and laundry. Tomorrows task in the lounge, which make take a few days if i end up working tomorrow.
Have a great week everyone. xxx
