110g honey
75g butter
170g buckwheat flour
1/2 tsp (3g) baking soda

30g butter
60g walnuts, chopped

Method

For the biscuits

Preheat oven to 180°C/350° F/Gas Mark 4 and line a tray with baking paper.

Take the dough from the fridge and allow it to warm up before rolling – you want it warm enough to work with without cracking.

Cut the dough into rounds using a cookie cutter or oiled water glass, and then place them onto the prepared baking tray. Only cut out enough dough rounds to fill your tray, and then wrap the remaining dough back up in cling film until you are ready to make the next batch.

For the topping

Place the chopped nuts in a bowl and set aside.

Melt the butter and honey in a saucepan over medium heat, then pour the combined melted mixture over the nuts and stir to combine. Allow to cool slightly before placing a teaspoon on top of each biscuit.

Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for 8 – 10 minutes.
