This recipe for spice biscuits is inspired by a Philippa Sibley one I came across a few years ago. I have tweaked and altered a few things, but nothing will change the amazing smell that will fill your kitchen if you make these.
225 gm softened butter
360 gm brown sugar
1½ tsp fine sea salt
340 gm plain flour, sieved
1 tsp ground mixed spice
Pinch of ground cloves
2 eggs, lightly whisked
180 gm roasted macadamias, coarsely chopped
200 gm good quality dark chocolate (I use one that is at least 50% cocoa solids), coarsely chopped
80 gm candied orange peel, coarsely chopped
Beat butter in an electric mixer fitted with a paddle until pale. This should take about 4-6 minutes. Then add sugar and salt, then add flour and spices and mix until combined.
