Iced Biscuits

  • Currently 4/5
Deliciously baked iced biscuits
250g plain flour
125g butter
125g (brown) sugar
1 egg (beaten)
2 ts cinnamon
Pinch of salt
125g icing sugar
2 tbs warm water
Food colouring
Cake decorations
1. 1. Set the oven to gas mark 5 / 190 C
2. 2. Grease two baking trays
3. 3. Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl and add the beaten egg bit by bit. Put the flour, salt and spice into a sieve, and add to the butter, sugar and egg mixture. Mix it altogether until it makes a dough.
4. 4. Dust a board lightly with flour and dust your rolling pin. Roll out the dough to a thickness of half a centimetre. Then using cutters or a knife, make some shapes.
5. 5. Put the biscuit shapes on the greased tray, and bake on a high shelf in the oven for 15 minutes (depending on your oven).
6. 6. Take the biscuits out of the oven and put them on a wire rack until they are cool.
7. 7. Make up the icing with the icing sugar and water, adding the water drip by drip so it's not runny. Add food colouring to the icing if you like, then ice the biscuits. Once the icing starts to set, bung on the decorations (candy balls, jelly diamonds, chocolate strands).
