Snowflake Biscuits

Servings 40 2.5" circular biscuits

Ingredients

For the biscuits

  • 230 g Butter or baking spread
  • 225 g Caster sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 385 g Plain flour
  • 1/2 tbsp Baking Powder

For the decoration

  • Icing sugar optional
  • Water optional
  • Sprinkles/glitter optional
  • Blue fondant optional

Instructions

  1. To make the dough cream together the butter and caster sugar. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix well

  2. Add the plain flour, cinnamon and baking powder and mix to form a dough. Wrap it in cling film and chill it in the fridge for 1 hour

  3. Pre-heat your oven to 160C Fan/180C/350F/Gas Mark 4, line your baking tray(s) with baking paper

  4. Roll the dough out onto baking paper, and cut out using a 2.5" round biscuit cutter (or snowflake shaped cutters if you prefer)

  5. Bake them for 8 - 10 minutes, until they are just going golden at the edges. Leave to cool completely

  6. Decorate however you like. I made a thick icing from icing sugar and water and piped snowflake patterns on some of the biscuits. For the others, I cut out snowflake shapes from blue fondant and stuck them onto the biscuits with a little water. I also sprayed on some edible silver glitter

  7. Store in an airtight container and eat within 5 days
