For Christmas we aim to only buy useful or edible things, this year, one of my presents was a scrabble biscuits cutter set. I haven’t managed to bake much since having the teeny one, but she happily sat in her highchair with a couple of time while I rolled out and printed the biscuits. Granted, I had made the dough the day before and hadn’t managed to find time to roll it out and make them.
They are crunchy and nice, the recipe is simple, the cutting out and printing is the thing that took time, but they are fun and the boy is happy to practice spellings with them!
140g caster sugar
200g plain flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. Clean together the butter and sugar.
2. Beat in the egg and vanilla, then stir in the flour until it’s all combined.
3. Chill the dough in cling film in the fridge for an hour.
4. Preheat oven to 200c.
5. Roll out the dough to 5-10mm thick then cut out using cookie cutters. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
I was hoping to make a new heading picture for this blog, but my son has nabbed all the useful letters! Maybe next time.
