Biscuits with Love

Leave a comment

My Daughter came to visit me this past weekend. One thing we enjoy doing together is cooking.
This is what came of hanging out in the same kitchen late one evening.

Iced Biscuits
Serves: 25-35

1 cup caster sugar
200 g butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or essence
3 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 eggs
Hundreds and thousands sprinkles (or cachous)

2 cups icing sugar
1-2 tablespoons water

Preheat oven to 180°C.
Place sugar and butter in a bowl and mix with electric mixer until well combined.
Add flour, essence, bicarbonate of soda and eggs.
Mix and knead with hands until mixture forms into a slightly tacky dough.
Wrap in cling film and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Line two baking trays with baking paper.
Lightly flour a surface and roll the dough out to around 5 mm thick.
Cut out with cookie cutter and place onto tray around 2 cm apart.
Repeat rolling, cutting and placing until all the dough is used.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cookies start to colour.
Remove from oven, cool slightly before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
Spread the tops with icing and sprinkle on hundreds and thousands.

Love you kid. I enjoy spending time with you, you’ve grown into a wonderful woman and I am very proud to have been part of your life.

40, on my way to 40 something...Still not sure what I want to do when I grow up, retire probably... Food obsessed, love to cook it, read about it, eat it... Chock full of useless information that crowds out the useful stuff sometimes.
