Makes 30 button biscuits


  1. Mix the butter, sea salt and brown sugar until well combined. Add the maple syrup and mix.

  2. Add the milk and mix again. Fold in the plain flour.

  3. Once all the ingredients are combined, wrap the dough in cling film and rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.

  4. Roll out the dough to 4mm (3/16”) thick, using marzipan spacers as a guide if necessary. Chill the sheet of biscuit dough in the fridge for one hour until firm.

  5. Remove the dough from the fridge and cut out 30 circles using a 4cm (1¾”) round cutter, then emboss a circle just inside the outer edge with a 2.5cm (1”) cutter. Make two or four tiny holes in the centre of each biscuit using a small piping nozzle.

  6. Bake the biscuits at 170°C/340°F/gas mark 3½ for 16–20 minutes. Top Tip If you are making these biscuits for favours or as a gift, thread a narrow ribbon through several biscuits and tie in a bow before wrapping in tissue paper or cellophane.
