With mothers day fast approaching I thought I would share these cute mummys day biscuits that I made with the kiddies today :) They are really quick to make and lets face it, what mummy wouldn't swoon over some handmade biscuits from their little ones :)
100g (4oz) butter
50g (2oz) sugar
vanilla extract to taste
175g (6oz) plain flour
bottle top/1 teaspoon of milk
The good thing about this recipe is that it is very basic so you can add whatever flavourings you wish to them
Beat the butter and sugar together until you have a smooth yellow liquid.
Mix in the vanilla extra and flour and bring together, at the last minute add the milk to help bind and then leave in the fridge for 10 minutes
I then used a heart shape cutter for the little hearts and I got the boys to put their hands onto the biscuit dough whilst i cut out the shapes of their hands.
These are the biscuits after being baked in the over for approx 25mins.
I mixed some pink food colouring with some icing sugar and got the boys to decorate their biscuits
A biscuit wouldnt be complete without some chocolate sprinkles right? lol
These turnt out super cute and once dried can be popped into a clear bag with some ribbon tied around the top as a cute mothers day gift.
