Iced Biscuits…

Again this blog has been neglected, with one sickness after another I feel like I’ve not had any down time. I’ve not got a clue how I’ll start working again, time to get organised once more!

I feel like Amber needed some mummy and daughter time, with Jasper being sick she’s not had as much attention as normal. So I thought we’d make some simple biscuits, with Valentine’s these make cute gifts.

Simple biscuits…

  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 lightly beaten egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 275g plain flour

For the icing:

  • Pre rolled icing or icing sugar
  • Food colouring
  • Optional; sprinkles, metallic paint, letter cutters

  • Cream the butter and sugar
  • Add the egg and vanilla essence
  • Then the flour gradually
  • Roll out onto a floured surface to about 1cm thick
  • Cut out biscuits and put onto greaseproof baking paper
  • Bake for 8-10 mins at 170 (fan assisted oven) until golden
  • Cool on wire rack
  • Once cooled ice using your chosen method; I used pre rolled icing, adding a small amount of colour to give a marbled effect. I then added painted letters. Amber went with icing sugar, sprinkles and cut out letters.

This kept Amber occupied all afternoon, though there was quite a mess!

Wrapped up and ready to gift…
