Galaxy Star Biscuits

Galaxy Star Biscuits are great for all children, young and old (and adults too of course). A Dairy Diary recipe.




Galaxy Star Biscuits

Ingredients

Butter 250g (9oz), softened

Icing sugar 350g (12oz)

Vanilla extract 1 tsp

Egg 1 large, yolk only

Plain flour 375g (13oz), sifted

Lemon 1, juice only

Food colouring paste 2 contrasting colours

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 190°C/170°fan/Gas 5 and line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Cream butter with 150g (5oz) icing sugar until light and fluffy.

2

Mix in vanilla extract and egg yolk, then fold in flour to form a firm dough. Wrap in clingfilm and chill for an hour.

3

On a floured surface, roll out chilled dough to a 3mm (⅛in) even thickness. Cut out stars using a star-shaped cutter. Re-roll trimmings until all dough has been used up.

4

Place on lined trays and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

5

In a wide, shallow bowl, mix remaining icing sugar with lemon juice and 3-4 tablespoons boiling water to make a glace icing.

6

Squeeze 3 small blobs of each food colour over icing, then swirl together with a skewer to create a marbled effect.

7

Dip cooled biscuits into icing, keeping as flat as possible, then place on wire racks to dry.
