  • 1/4 cup (35g) plain (all-purpose) flour

  • 40 gram butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon teaspoon cinnamon sugar

Method

Wafer roll biscuits
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease two oven trays. Mark four 8.5cm circles on two sheets of baking paper; place on trays, marked-side down.
  • 2
    Beat egg whites in a small bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, beating until dissolved after each addition. Fold in sifted flour and spices, then butter.
  • 3
    Drop rounded teaspoons of mixture into marked circles, spread evenly to fill circles. Sprinkle each circle with a pinch of cinnamon sugar.
  • 4
    Bake one tray of biscuits at a time, for 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Working quickly with one circle at a time, slide a metal spatula under circle then roll around a plastic chopstick; leave to firm. Repeat process with remaining circles.

Notes

Wafer rolls are best made on day of serving. Cinnamon sugar is available in the spice section of most supermarkets.
