Mulled Cider with Pumpkin Pie Spiced Biscuits - Suma Bloggers Network

Mulled Cider with Pumpkin Pie Spiced Biscuits (vegan)
As I've just been given a jar of pumpkin pie spice by a friend, I though I'd better put it to good use and create an autumnal recipe for the Suma Bloggers Network. I've paired the (vegan) spiced cookies with some warming, mulled cider, both of which would be great for Bonfire Night.

For the mulled cider
Serves 2-4
  • 1 litre of good quality vegan cider (I used Aspall cyder from Suma)
  • 2 pouches of mulled cider spice (from Suma)
  • 2 tbsp soft, brown sugar, or a little more to taste
Put the spice pouches into a pan, along with the cider and sugar.
Warm the cider gently on a low heat until the sugar has dissolved and the cider is just starting to simmer (don't boil it!). Turn the heat off and allow to infuse for 10 minutes.
Serve warm.

For the biscuits
Makes 20
  • 200g/8oz SR flour
  • 100g/4oz dairy free spread/margarine
  • 100g/4oz soft brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp black treacle/molasses
  • 2-3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
Pre-heat the oven to 180C/170C Fan/Gas 4/350F
 Blend the spread and flour together using a food processor.
Add all of the remaining ingredients and mix well to form a firm, smooth dough.
Roll the dough into around 20 small balls.
Place, well spaced apart, on greased baking trays.
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes, before removing onto a wire rack to cool fully.

Suitable for freezing. 

Top tips: For any North American readers, this recipe uses alcoholic (hard) cider.

  1. I do love the crack on those pumpkin pie biscuits or cookies as some would say. Would love some of your mulled cider right now.

    1. I never know whether to call them biscuits or cookies, especially after encountering an American biscuit, which is a scone!
