Over the weekend I practiced my cookie decorating skills with these cute little dresses and shoes. The results are a little wobbly, but all in all, I am pretty pleased with what I created! The recipe that I used for these cut out biscuits is one from a Donna Hay magazine from a few years ago. However, the last few times I have made cut out biscuits I have used a firm shortbread recipe using icing sugar rather than castor sugar (After years of making shortbread with icing sugar, flour and butter, the last few years I have used a recipe using flour, castor sugar, rice flour, cornflour and butter which I think gives a nicer texture, but is too buttery for icing shapes!). I like the firmer texture of the shortbread for the cut out biscuits as the biscuits don’t tend to soften as much once iced.
Looking forward to lots more practising icing my biscuits! Practice will hopefully make perfect!!
