Why I Love This Recipe

Moon Biscuits are traditionally eaten with wine during various moon celebrations or rituals. They are made in the shape of the crescent moon, and the whole hazelnuts in them represent the Full Moon that is to come.

Ingredients You'll Need

250g/9oz Wholewheat pastry flour
75g/3oz Soft Light Brown Sugar
175g/6oz Butter or Vegan Marg
A Large Handful of Hazelnuts


Preheat oven to 300F or 150C.

Beat the butter or margarine with the sugar until blended.

Add the flour, and mix together to form a dough.

Knead on a floured surface.

Gently work the whole hazelnuts through it, flatten out to a depth of about half an inch.

If you have a moon-shaped pastry cutter, use this to form the biscuits.

However, you may want to cut the moon shapes yourself with a small sharp knife.

You can even add a few features, or Moon symbols, to the surface.

Place the biscuits on a baking sheet, and put in the oven until light golden brown.
