You will need:
1 cup of caster sugar
2 cups of plain flour
Zest & juice of 1 orange
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp mace
1 tsp nutmeg
1.Mix the butter and sugar together until they form a creamy paste. Continue mixing and add the flour, eggs, zest & juice, flour and spices.
2. Roll the mixture into one inch diameter balls. Place on a greased baking tray, with at least one inch space around them. Press the tops gently with a fork to flatten them slightly.
3. Place in a preheated oven at 180°/gas mark 4 for twelve to fourteen minutes. The biscuits are ready when they have just started to brown around the edges. Leave to cool on a baking tray.
For the Icing:
1.Mix the butter and icing sugar together in a bowl, adding the milk as needed to make a smooth paste.
2. To make the spider’s web pattern on your biscuits, first, spread uncoloured icing over the biscuit. Then, with a piping bag or an icing pen, draw concentric circles with the coloured icing.
