They combine fruit mince and mixed spice into bite sized treat which are ready to eat in just 35 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 125g butter, diced and softened
  • ½ cup CSR Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup CSR Caster Sugar
  • 1 extra large egg
  • 2 ½ cups self raising flour
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • ½ cup pre-bought fruit mince
  • 80g macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 1 cup CSR Pure Icing Sugar
  • 25ml milk

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 160°C fan-forced. Line 2 x oven trays with baking paper.
  2. Place butter and sugars into the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat until pale and creamy. Add egg, mixing until well combined.
  3. Fold in combined flour and spice alternately with the fruit mince until well combined. Remove bowl from machine and fold in chopped nuts with a spoon.
  4. Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into small balls and flatten slightly onto oven trays. Bake for 16 mins until golden. Transfer to a cooling rack.
