    Serves: 16

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 160 C.
    2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, white sugar and cinnamon. Cut or rub in the butter until the mixture is like fine crumbs.
    3. Pack the crumbs into a ball, then knead by hand until smooth.
    4. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out into an 20cm circle. Place the circle on a baking sheet, and slice into 16 wedges. Leave the circle intact.
    5. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until the center has set. Cut the circle into wedges again while it is still warm and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

    These were great! I made 1 batch to see what they'd be like and about a half an hour later my Grandemother asked me to make more! My Grandma is notoriously picky so when she asked for more I knew they were a hit! Thanks!  -  07 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    pretty good...easy to make...I pressed the dough into a rectangle on the cooky sheet & cut into small rectangles...a good "not to sweet" treat...recipe doesn't make very many  -  25 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are pretty good! I added some nutmeg, a splash of vanilla and a pinch of salt. Nice flavor. It could have been a wee bit sweeter perhaps? One of those feelings that something is missing. Not sure, but they are pretty good the way they are.  -  06 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
