Cinnamon Swirl Biscuits

As promised another day another biscuit experiment using the butter biscuit recipe I gave you last time! I found experimenting with making biscuits was so much fun especially when my inspiration was looking round my kitchen and thinking ‘this could work’. This time out my recipe for Cinnamon Swirl Biscuits;


  • 250g of Butter
  • 140g of Caster Sugar
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 2tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 300g of Plain Flour
  • 3tbsp of Cinnamon Powder

  1. Preheat the oven to 150C
  2. Cream the butter and caster sugar in a large bowl until smooth
  3. Add the egg yolk and vanilla extract and beat to combine
  4. Sift the flour into the mixture in stages whilst working it into the mix
  5. At this point using your fingers is best to bring the mixture together
  6. Roll out 1cm thick on a dusted surface into a rectangle 4cm wide by as long as it will go remaining 1cm thick
  7. Then spread the cinnamon all over one side of the mixture
  8. Then starting from the short side roll the mixture up to create the swirl
  9. Place the cylinder in the fridge for 30 minutes to cool
  10. Once chilled cut width ways in 1cm thick strips and lay the biscuits onto a baking sheet
  11. Place in oven for 15-16 minutes watching carefully until the biscuits are golden
  12. Bring out of the oven and allow to cool

This recipe for Cinnamon Swirl Biscuits was so much fun and would be great to make with kids, it also incorporates one of my favourite winter flavours, cinnamon, which is perfect when it is -5 outside (come on it is March) but if it gives me an excuse to make biscuits I can put up with the cold a little while longer! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
