    • 175g Loprofin Mix
    • 75g caster sugar
    • 3 tsp Sno-Pro
    • Grated rind of ½ lemon and 1 tsp dried lavender or of ½ small orange
    • 1 tsp sweet spice (i.e. ginger, cinnamon, mixed spice etc.)
    • 50g currants or other dried fruits
    • Few drops of vanilla or almond essence
    • 50g finely chopped cherries


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
    2. Rub the butter and Loprofin Mix togeter in a large mixing bowl until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
    3. Stir in the sugar and add flavouring (as above), if desired.
    4. Using one hand, squeeze the mixture until it comes together, adding sufficient Sno-Pro to give a manageable dough. Transfer to a surface lightly dusted with Loprofin Mix and knead the dough for about 30 seconds until smooth.
    5. Roll out the dough to about ½ cm thickness and cut into desired shapes (e.g. stars, hearts, circles, ovals, animal shapes or others).
    6. Transfer the biscuits to a lightly greased baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 20–25 minutes until pale golden in colour.
    7. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the baking tray to cool completely on a wire rack.
