For the biscuits
- 135g margarine or butter
- ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 190g plain flour
- ½ tsp ground ginger
- ½ tsp ground mixed spice
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- 65g oats
- ¼ tsp salt
- 80g caster sugar
- 80g light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- ½ tsp vanilla essence
For the coating
- 1 egg white
- 30g caster sugar
Preheat the oven to 160°C (140°C fan/gas mark 3). Put the margarine or butter, bicarbonate of soda, flour, ginger, mixed spice, cinnamon, oats, salt and sugars into a mixing bowl and bring together until the mix resembles breadcrumbs.
Add the egg and vanilla essence and mix until it forms a soft dough.
On a floured surface, roll out the dough to approximately 1.5cm thick and cut into circles using a scone or cookie cutter.
Place the biscuits onto a lined baking tray, brush with egg white and sprinkle with caster sugar.
Bake for around 15 minutes until the biscuits are firm and lightly golden.
