Rye Angels

100g light rye flour

150g wholemeal flour, preferrably fine grade

A pinch of salt

1 large egg

35g unsalted butter

60g sugar 

80g honey

30g milk

Spices: 1.5tsp cinnamon, 1/4tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp cloves, 1/2 tsp ginger. All ground. For darker biscuits add up to 1Ts of cocoa powder.


Start by melting butter, honey, sugar and milk on a low heat until all sugar dissolves. (Step 1) Cool it down.

Mix all flours, salt, spices. Add egg and melted and cooled down liuid from step 1. Mix until all well combined. Roll out to about 5mm thickness and cut out shapes. 

Bake for 8 minutes in a preheated to 200C oven. 

Decorate with any icing to your liking or leave plain as I normally do.
