recipe: belgian biscuits

What's uuup! Wow, it's been quite some time since I last blogged. I would say it's partially work-related, partially... me just being selfish and wanting some time to myself!

But now I'm back in the game - so here's what I have to serve up today: A fab-o Belgian biscuit recipe from one of my favourite foodie blogs, Our Kitchen. What's better than a little sugar 'n spice to go with your coffee during this cold spell??

Belgian biscuits (Makes +-24)


250g softened butter 
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp mixed spice
2 tsp ginger
2 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp cocoa


1. Process butter, sugar and eggs until well combined. Add spices, flour, cocoa and baking powder and pulse until combined and mixture comes together to form a dough.

2. Divide dough in two, wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

3. Preheat the oven to 180°C on bake and line 2 baking trays.

4. Roll the dough out to a thickness of 5mm and cut out shapes using a cookie cutter. Place carefully on the baking trays and bake for 8 – 10 minutes or until very lightly golden (you don’t want them to brown). Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
