Cinnamon biscuits

Whilst in lockdown the smallest Braithwaite and myself have been busy getting our bake on. These cinnamon biscuits have gone down a storm! Really easy to make and very delicious. She particularly enjoys dusting them in cinnamon sugar at the end!


  • 175 g Dairy Free spread (I use vitalite)
  • 100 g Caster Sugar
  • 225 g Plain White Gluten Free Flour
  • 1.5 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • Quarter teaspoon xanthan gum

Cinnamon Sugar for coating and topping

  • 30 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Makes around 16 biscuits


  1. Cream the butter and the sugar together.
  2. Combine the flour and the cinnamon. Mix thoroughly into the creamed butter and sugar until you’ve got a solid mass of biscuit dough.
  3. For the Cinnamon Sugar: Mix the sugar and cinnamon together then leave in a dish to one side.
  4. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  5. Divide the dough into approximately 16 equally sized balls rolling each ball between the palms of your hands until it’s spherical, then toss to coat in cinnamon sugar.
  6. Keep the left over cinnamon sugar to dust the baked biscuits.
  7. Place the sugared balls of dough on the baking tray and press down with your fingers to flatten out.
  8. Bake the biscuits for 20 – 25 minutes, until they’re turning golden and have cooked through.
  9. Remove from the oven dust with any remaining cinnamon sugar before cooling on a wire rack.
