Christmas Tree Iced Biscuits

Christmas-tree-iced-biscuits-recipe

I've spent most of the day baking these christmas tree biscuits and icing around 30 of them and it was the most productive day ever. I've also managed to make these, photograph and write up this post all in one day. Maybe it's because I am fully in the christmas spirit and these biscuits really turned out to be delicious so I was excited to share these with you.
Biscuits are probably one of the easiest things to bake but extremely difficult to ice. I feel like I've done much better this time but one thing I always get right is the taste. Especially when the recipe is so classic and a no brainer. These make perfect little favours for someone or to indulge in over the weekend!

The Recipe:
100g of Unsalted Butter
100g of Sugar (Castor/plain)
250g of Flour
2-3 drops of Vanilla Flavouring.
1 Egg

Yep, that's it! Mix the dry and wet ingredients separately and combine them slowly in small portions until it makes a nice dough. Roll out the dough and cut your Christmas tree shapes. Use a cookie cutter or a knife works fine too but it's a little bit more time consuming if you want make a lot of them. Here's a super affordable cookie cutter set for all your festive cookie needs! Preheat the oven to 160 degree Celsius and bake for about 10-15 minutes.

For the icing:
1 Egg white
200g of Icing Sugar
Few drops of food colouring
And...a lot of patience!

Mix the sugar in small portions as well until you achieve a thick icing paste. Then all you need to do is pop some into an icing bag, put on a super fine nozzle and ice away. I added some gold candy stars on top for some added sparkle.

  5. These are just so precious! I'm a big fan of chocolate covered pretzels. They're so easy but you can do so much with them, and pretty much everyone loves them!
