Optional (to decorate):
Top tip: If it doesn’t feel like it will ever come together then add a tiny drop of oil.
Top tip: If you want thick biscuits then prick with a fork, this helps the baking process by releasing the steam and prevents the biscuits from puffing up.
Decoration top tips!
1. Use pre-made icing in easy pipe tubes/ melted chocolate.
2. Make perfect home made icing by adding small amount of lemon juice to icing sugar powder until it binds together with the consistency of thick glue. It should slowly fall off the spoon. If it is too runny then simply add more icing sugar and add more lemon juice if it is too thick.
3. Be more creative by adding sprinkles, chocolate drops, or sugar flowers.
