These sugar biscuits are just one of my favourite recipes. I usually come across sugar biscuits much too sweet, but these have almond extract in which truly aids counterbalance the sweetness. These make the great biscuits to transform into Gruffalo sugar biscuits when listening to the Gruffalo story by Tonies.
Make positive you abide by my activities board on Pinterest for a lot more strategies. Never ignore to help save the pin for later.
To make these Gruffalo sugar biscuits you will want:
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1 ¼ cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ½ almond extract
- 3 cups flour
- 1 ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- Round cookie cutter
- Smarties or M&Ms
- Chocolate 100s and 1000s
- Chocolate buttons
- Icing sugar
- Marzipan or icing fondant
- Black icing pen
Combine the dry components and depart them to the side.
In an additional bowl cream the sugar and butter collectively, then include the vanilla, almond, and egg. Mix once again.
Little by little increase the dry ingredients right until you get a organization dough.
Generally recipes say to place the dough into the fridge as it is, but if you roll out the dough onto parchment paper prior to putting it into the fridge for at the very least 30 minutes, it would make it much less difficult when you take it out.
Slice out circles with your cookie cutter. Then set them into the oven on 180c for 8-10 minutes.
When the biscuits have cooled you can start off your decorating. I am afraid I didn’t take any photos from below on out.
While they are cooling you can use the marzipan or fondant to make some horns and teeth.
Cover your cookies in icing, adhere on two horns, two chocolate buttons for the ears, 2 orange M&Ms for the eyes, and a person green M&M for the nose. Then cover it with chocolate 100s and 1000s. You do have to have to transfer pretty swiftly with that section, you really don’t want the icing to dry before the sprinkles are on.
Employing the black icing pen, increase some pupils to the eyes and draw on a mouth. Finally incorporate the enamel.
Now it is time to set the kettle on and appreciate taking in your Gruffalo sugar biscuits though you finish listening to the Gruffalo with your very little a single.
