How to Make Russian Medianyky (Honey Biscuits)

Step-by-Step

  1. Sift together the flour, spices, sugar and baking powder into a bowl.
  2. Mix with a fork to blend thoroughly then add the eggs, honey and orange peel. Stir well and bring together as a soft dough.
  3. Turn onto a floured work surface then roll the dough out to about 12mm thick (flour your rolling pin to make this easier). Cut into squares with a pastry cutter then transfer to a lightly-greased non-stick baking tray.
  4. Brush each one with the egg wash then scatter the sugar crystals on top. Place almonds on top.
  5. Transfer the biscuits to an oven pre-heated to 170°C and bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a wire rack to cool before storing in an air-tight tin.
