Cinnamon cashew biscuits

It's been a dastardly cold wintry day today and it's not even December yet! To warm and cheer us I made these spiced biscuits with cinnamon for warmth and cashews for bite.

Cinnamon cashew biscuits
1/2 cup cashews
1/3 cup margarine
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
A large pinch ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
A sprinkle of salt

Preheat oven to 180c
Grind the cashews in a mini chopper (or something) then add the other ingredients and whizz until it makes dough.
Roll out (I did it between greaseproof paper, as always) and cut out shapes.
Bake for 8 mintes or until golden.
Cool and decorate with water icing and sugar sprikles.

Later on, Chris made us this hearty winter soup of parsnips, onion, watercress, sprouts and red lentils to boost us up for the cold days ahead. Take that, Jack Frost!
