Pacman Biscuits

After spending a bit of time on google this week, I subconciously needed to do something pacman related. I also wanted to make more biscuits, but some ones with some different flavours. Homemade honey jumbles (from women's weekly - best of baking) came to the rescue.


60g butter
1/4 cup brown sugar (recipe says 1/2 cup, but I used less as I knew the icing would be sweet)
3/4 cup golden syrup
1 egg
2 1/2 cups wholemeal flour
1/2 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon mixed spice

oven = 140 degrees fan forced

Combine butter, sugar and golden syrup in saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. Add everything else to saucepan, mix until combined. Knead dough onto floured surface until it is not sticky (note - this takes a fair while). Put in small freezer bag, refrigerate for 30 minutes. Get dough back out, roll and cut into rectangles (left over dough, I rolled into little balls, smooshed them on the baking tray = circles). Put in oven. 15 minutes

(If you want crunchy biscuits, set your oven at 180).

Take out of oven, let cool on wire rack.

Icing = icing sugar + water (failsafe recipe)

Put over biscuits and decorate (I used mini licorice allsorts cut into small pieces).

enjoy :)
