Top Tip

The thinner you roll your biscuits the crunchier they will be.

You can now use to decorate with Royal Icing or sugarpaste.

You can also you deep silicone moulds like Karen Davies moulds to push in the mixture if you don’t want to roll.  Tip out of the mould and refrigerate before baking.  Do not bake in the mould.
