The weather has been soooo cold this week! ❄️❄️❄️ Perfect for snuggling with hot chocolate & snowflake biscuits 😍 here’s the recipe I use for my cookies if you fancy making them too 💕
200g unsalted butter (softened)
200g caster sugar
1 tbsp of vanilla paste/essence
400g plain flour
using a mixer (or by hand) cream together the butter, sugar, vanilla and salt until smooth & creamy.
In another bowl lightly beat the egg and add to the butter mixture.
Sift in the flour and mix until the dough just comes together (if you over mix the biscuit won't have a nice bite to it)
Scoop the dough into a ball, flatten slightly & cover with clingfilm, pop in the fridge for about 30 mins.
Once the dough has chilled, lightly dust the surface you are going to roll on with some flour, & roll out the dough - try and keep the biscuits all the same thickness as then they will cook the same amount of time.
Using your chosen cutters cut out the shapes and pop on a baking tray lined with baking paper
Put the tray of biscuits back in the fridge for about 30 mins again (this will stop them spreading when baked)
Then bake for about 10 minutes at gas mark 3/ 175c (this totally depends on what oven you have so make sure you check them - they are ready once they have gone a golden brown round the edges)
I decorated these biscuits with rolled out fondant xx
