I have told you before I think I can do everything.....
Well usually I can and most times they turn out OK....
I decided ( another bright idea ) to make iced biscuit's in the shape of baby bottles,feet and jumpsuit for the shower.....
The only thing was I have never never made iced biscuit's before.I have done flooding with icing so I thought yeah you can do it..
So off I go and buy my cookie cutters -so sweet. I found a recipe and finally after putting it off made my first batch last night.'
Easy sugar biscuit's.
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 3/4 cup plain flour
cream the butter and sugar
add vanilla and egg
add all dry ingredients
mix well knead into firm dough roll out and go for it .
cut out your shapes till your little heart is content or until you run out of dough.
cook on moderate heat for 7 to 10 mins
let cool then ice.
My recipe said she waits 2 days before she ices.....
Hey they turned out quite good.The smell was divine.....now I have to ice them........
The icing I used was just royal icing .I cheated and bought it from Woolworths ready made so all you had to do was add water .I found this quite good as I could decide quanities better.
The problem I did have was I did them late at night when I was over it and didn't be as neat as I should.I had my royal icing a bit to thick to do the pipe work with and next time I will use a smaller icing tip and TAKE MY TIME......
But otherwise I think they turned out ok for my first attempt.I am determined to get better at it so watch out everyone there is going to be cookies for every occasion I have on my calender.
And remember there is always cello bags to hide them in.ha hah ha
