Iced Biscuits

This recipe makes 40 biscuits and are great sandwiched together with seedless raspberry jam and decorated with glacé icing.


100g unsalted butter, at room temperature
100g caster sugar
1 egg lightly beaten
2tsp vanilla extract
275g plain flour

Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy.

Mix the egg with the vanilla and add to the mix a little at a time until combined.

Stir in the flour and bring together to form a dough.

Pre-heat the oven to 190C

Roll out to 1/4" thick and cut into 2" rounds then bake in the oven for 4-5 minutes until pale golden.  Cool on a wire rack.

For the icing

Mix icing sugar with a little lemon juice until you get the consistency of thick syrup, if you want different colours separate the white icing accordingly and add a few drops of food colouring.  1 tsp of icing is enough for 1 biscuit.

Sandwich the biscuits together with jam, ice the top and decorate.
