Catherine Fulvio & Whirlpool’s Flower Biscuits

This is a great recipe for introducing kids to baking!

Makes about 8 depending on the size of the cutter

Preparation Time: 20 minutes plus resting and decorating time

Cooking: 15 to 17 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 120g soft butter
  • 80g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 300g plain flour, sifted
  • Flower shaped cutter
  • Lolly sticks
  • Pink, yellow or blue royal icing tubes
  • Sprinkles of your choice
  • Ribbon, for bows

Method:

  1. To make the biscuits, cream the butter, sugar and vanilla extract in a mixer until light and creamy.
  2. Add the egg and carefully mix in the flour to form soft biscuit dough.
  3. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to “rest” for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the Whirlpool 6th Sense Oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/gas 4. “ The beauty the Fan cooking in this Whirlpool oven is that you can cook 3 different dishes at once without the flavours mixing – so the kids can bake these biscuits while the dinner is cooking, saving you energy”
  5. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
  6. Roll out the dough fairly thickly on a floured surface and use a flower cutter to make shapes.
  7. Transfer the flowers on to the lined tray, carefully insert a lolly stick in each and bake for 15 to 17 minutes until lightly golden and cooked.
  8. Allow to cool completely on the parchment before moving them to decorate.
  9. To decorate, using the icing tube, draw a centre for each flower, pour on the sprinkles and leave to set for an hour.
  10. To serve, tie bows to the lollysticks.
