Ingredients

140 g butter

100 g light soft brown sugar

3 tbsp golden syrup

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

350 g Golden Cloud Flour, plus extra for dusting

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 large egg


Icing:

Food colouring

1 kg pack ready-to-roll icing

Icing sugar, for dusting

Icing writing pens

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.

  2. Melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a small saucepan. Mix in the vanilla, remove from the heat and leave to cool for 10 minutes.

  3. Sieve the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl. Pour in the butter mixture, add the egg and stir together to form a stiff-ish dough.

  4. Pop the dough in the fridge for 10 minutes to chill and firm up. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to 5 mm thick, then use an egg-shaped cutter to stamp out 15 biscuits - re-roll the dough if necessary. Bake for 12 minutes until golden.

  5. Knead some food colouring into lumps of fondant icing. Roll out on a surface lightly dusted with icing sugar then use the cutter to cut out matching egg shapes. Use the icing pens to dot a little icing on each biscuit then stick on an icing shape.

  6. Decorate the biscuits with the icing. Let them dry and enjoy.
