IMG_19500B511B5A-5

This weeks bake is an extra special one, it is one that has made it all the way to Glastonbury Festival! I made these on Tuesday before we left on Tuesday night not at the festival although we are glampers I think taking an actual oven might be a bit extreme! These are based off a traditional party ring recipe with add glitter, sprinkles and sparkle to give the full festival effect!

Ingredients for biscuit 

  • 200g Plain Flour
  • 100g Salted Butter
  • 100g Caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg

Ingredients for icing 

  • 250g Icing sugar
  • Paste/gel food colouring – these always give the best brightest colours, lakeland stocks them or look on amazon.
  • Sprinkle, edible glitter etc.

 

Method

  1. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.IMG_19500B511B5A-8
  2. Once pale, add the egg and vanilla bean paste and beat together until no lumps.
  3. Then add the flour in a little at a time to start with to ensure that it is fully mixed in. The mixture may require you to use your hands at the end.IMG_19500B511B5A-2.jpeg
  4. Wrap the dough in cling film and leave to chill in the fridge for 10 minutes then roll out until 5mm thick between two pieces of baking paper.
  5. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees celcius.
  6. Once rolled out use a 5cm cutter to cut out circles, then using another small cutter or a circular object around the kitchen such a small bottle top to cut out the inner piece.
  7. Place on a baking tray lined with teflon sheets and leave to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  8. Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool fully on a cooling rack.
  10. Make the icing using icing sugar and water and adding in drop of the gel/paste into separate bowls.IMG_19500B511B5A-1
