Jelly Crystal Biscuits

Leave a comment

I don’t know where this recipe came from but for a kids party they would be a real hit. I have been wanting to try them now for a while but just never quite got around to it. The jelly stained them in a lot brighter hues than I expected but didn’t impart a ton of flavour. They were a nice biscuit though, light, sweet and buttery add to that combination sparkly (from rolling in jelly crystals) and you have the perfect fairy party biscuit.

I was limited to 2 colours by what i had on hand but it wouldn’t be hard to make a rainbow of different ones.

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.
