To make the biscuits:
1. Pre heat oven to 150° C, 300 F, Gas mark 2.
2. Cream together the butter and icing sugar.
3. Then, add the egg and continue to mix. Once all together sieve in the flour.
4. Mix together until a rough dough forms.
5. Knead until a smooth dough forms on a lightly floured surface.
6. Wrap in clingfilm and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
7. Then, roll out to a thickness of 6mm and use your desired cutter to stamp out your biscuit shape.
8. Return the biscuits to the fridge for a further 30 mins.
9. Then, place on middle shelf in oven for 10/12 mins, until golden brown.
Royal Icing (for line icing only – when using sugarpaste)
1. Add icing sugar gradually to egg white, mixing gently at first.
2. Once all has been incorporated, turn up the speed to high and leave to beat for 5 minutes.
3. Check the consistency by doing the knife test. Cut a line through the icing and count how many seconds it takes for the ‘cut’ to disappear. For line icing, it should be approximately 20-25 seconds. If it takes longer, add a few drops of water and repeat the cut test.
4. Divide icing into separate bowls depending on how many colours are required.
5. Once the biscuits have cooled completely, they are ready to be iced.
Royal Icing (for line and flooding icing)
1. Repeat the same process of the Royal Icing for line icing.
2. For flooding, add water until it takes the icing approx. 5-6 seconds for a knife cut to disappear.
3. Once the biscuits have cooled completely, they are ready to be iced.
