Ingredients

  • 200g Siúcra Caster Sugar
  • 200g butter, softened
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 400g plain flour
  • 1 packet Siúcra Instant Royal Icing
  • Pink and purple gel food colouring
  • Edible silver balls Small piping bag with nozzle – optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 150˚C
  2. Cream the butter and caster sugar together. Beat in the egg and vanilla until well combined.
  3. Sieve the flour and add to the mixture. Flatten slightly, wrap in cling film and place in the fridge for 30 minutes. Sprinkle a little flour on to a work surface, roll out the cookie dough to an even thickness (approx 1/2 inch). Cut out shapes with a cookie cutter and carefully put them on a lined baking tray. Return to the fridge for another 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 150˚C for 20-25 minutes until the cookies are golden brown. Allow to cool on the tray for 10 minutes, then transfer onto a wire rack. Allow to cool completely.
  5. To decorate the cookies with Siúcra Instant Royal Icing: Sieve the Siúcra Royal Icing Sugar into a bowl and follow the directions on the packet to make it. Divide the royal icing between two bowls. Colour one bowl with pink food colouring and the other with purple. Fill a small piping bag with one of the coloured icings and pipe around the edge of the cookie. Carefully fill the middle of the cookie with the other coloured icing.
  6. To decorate the cookies with Siúcra Roll Out Icing: Dust a work surface with Siúcra Icing Sugar. Lightly knead the Siúcra Roll Out Icing sugar for 2 minutes. Sprinkle a little Siúcra Icing Sugar on a work surface and roll out the icing to ¼ inch thick. Use the same shape cookie cutter as used for the cookies and cut out the icing. Spread a thin layer of Siúcra Instant Royal Icing onto the cookies then stick the roll out icing on top. The Siúcra Roll Out Icing can also be coloured with a food colouring of your choice.
