Pecan Nut Biscuits 

Salams all…pray that your Ramadhan is going well…can you believe that we’re actually in the last week of Ramadhan..Not sure if everyone feels the same but I think this years Ramadhan has gone super fast…it’s just like its come as a visitor and is leaving us 😢 I feel very sad…but now also begins our Eid preparations…I’m just posting this quick biscuit recipe…it’s the most simplest of biscuits but I find is one of the tastiest…lovely on Eid day with your Eid Milk that Mum has lovingly made ❤️

INGREDIENTS:

1-2 cups Plain Flour (but add as much or less as you need to make a soft dough)

3/4 Cup Caster Sugar

250g butter

Half Cup Oil

2 tsp Baking Powder

Half cup Corn Flour

Half Cup Chopped Pecan Nuts

Half Cup Dessicated coconut

Melted Chocolate

METHOD:

Beat the butter, oil and caster sugar until creamy ( around 5-7 minutes)

Add the Corn flour and baking powder and beat again until combined.

Fold in the chopped pecan nuts and Dessicated coconut and then add flour half cup at a time and mix together to form a soft dough.

Divide the dough into 3 equal parts and roll into logs (as shown in pictured below) and wrap in cling film

Put logs in freezer for around 5 minutes and take out and slice into half inch slices.

Put onto a non stick tray covered with greaseproof paper.

Bake at 170 degrees or Gas Mark 3-4 for 10-12 minutes until slightly golden (just check they’re not browning too quickly)

Allow biscuits to cool and then drizzle with Melted Chocolate and Allow the chocolate to set.

Enjoy 😇
Dough is ready to roll into logs…dive into 3 equal parts

Roll into neat logs…don’t keep it too wide as they will spread whilst baking

 Wrap in Cling film and pop into the fridge for around 5 minutes
 Slice the dough equally
 Ready to be baked

 Put onto a baking tray covered in greaseproof paper and bake for around 10-12 minutes until golden
 Fresh out the oven (they smell amazing)

 Once biscuits have cooled drizzle melted chocolate on them (hope the hubby will make me a nice cup of tea 😉)
