Tonight we're having a party to celebrate our recently acquired Australian-ness.
I decided to put all my Australian shaped biscuit cutters to good use.
How cute did they turn out!
I used the basic biscuit mix from taste.com.au
- 185g butter, softened
- 3/4 cup caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 2 cups plain flour
The dough was really hard to work with, and really sweet, so next time i think I'll use less sugar.
To make it a bit more manageable, I rolled it out between greaseproof paper, and threw it into the freezer to firm up for 5 minutes before cutting, so that the shapes cut out and held their shape.
Then into the oven until just brown, leave to cool, then I iced with plain icing mix.
The hubby iced with squeezy chocolate frosting. Spot his ;)
