Simple 3D iced biscuits inspired by Bake Off. Ours are less intricate than the contestants’ creations, but just as impressive and much easier to make! You can use whatever cutters you have available – or even try a freehand creation.
Equipment and preparation: for this recipe you will need a rack to lean the biscuits against while the icing sets, a piping bag fitted with a small plain nozzle and biscuit cutters of your choice (it’s best to use small sizes).
For the basic dough
- 200g/7oz unsalted soft butter
- 200g/7oz caster sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 free-range egg, lightly beaten
- 400g/14oz plain flour, plus extra for dusting
