Party Ring Biscuits

INGREDIENTS

200g               Barkat All Purpose Flour Mix
1/4 tsp           Barkat Xanthan Gum
100g               Caster Sugar
100g               Butter
1                       Medium Sized Egg
1 tsp               Vanilla Extract
300g                 Icing Sugar
Selection of Food Colouring Pastes


METHOD

  1. Place your flour mix, xanthan gum, caster sugar, butter, egg and vanilla extract into a food processor and pulse until the mixture comes together.
  2. ALTERNATIVELY: rub butter into your dry ingredients until it resembles fine breadcrumbs, and then stir in the egg and vanilla extract.
  3. Remove mix from processor/bowl and bring the dough together into a ball.
  4. Wrap the dough in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 180 Celsius (160 fan) & prepare a couple of baking sheets (grease them).
  6. Remove the dough from the fridge and roll it out on a lightly floured surface.
  7. Roll it out to about 1/2 cm thickness & then, using a cutter, cut out circles. (my cutter was just over 6cm across)
  8. Place your circles on your baking tray.
  9. Using a smaller circle cut out a hole in the middle. (I used a just over 2cm cutter)
  10. Place in the oven for around 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden.
  11. Once slightly cooled, transfer to a cooling rack.
  12. For the ICING, place your icing sugar in a bowl & add a small amount of just boiled water.
  13. Mix the water into the icing sugar until it has a smooth, thick, spreadable consistency.
  14. Divide your icing into a few smaller bowls, and using your colouring pastes, colour your icing in different colours.
  15. Once your biscuits are 100% cooled you can ice them!
  16. Choose a colour icing and with a knife spread it across your first biscuit.
  17. Then, use a contrasting icing colour to drizzle over the top in lines or any pattern you like.
  18. Use a cocktail stick through the icing to feather the pattern. (This needs to all be done quite quickly as the icing will set)
  19. Continue to do this with all the biscuits. Use different colour combinations & have some fun!
  20. Leave the biscuits to set before you dive in.
  21. Enjoy!
