All Butter Biscuits
A great cookie for cutters and easy to decorate!
I made these for my daughters 3rd birthday but im planning on making some Christmas ones this week. Best get out the red and green colouring!
90g unsalted butter
100g caster sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
200g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
To decorate I used Royal icing easily made with icing sugar, water and your choice of food colouring!
Pre heat oven to 180C
Cream the butter and sugar
Add the beaten egg & vanilla essence
Combine the flour, baking powder & salt
Add to wet mix
Form a ball with the dough and wrap in cling film (saran wrap) and chill in the fridge for an hour
Once chilled roll on a lightly floured surface
Use what ever cookie cutters you like or if you have none you can cut into shapes with a knife
Bake for 10 mins
Once cooled you can ice & decorate!
