Twinkle Stars

This is a lovely little biscuit recipe that my Mum would bake with me and my brothers when we were little. It’s relatively easy for little fingers and quick too so you don’t lose their attention.

Be prepared to make a mess though πŸ˜‰

6ozΒ Self Raising Flour

Pinch of Salt

3oz Sugar

2oz Ground Almonds

(if you can’t get ground ones, use flaked almonds and blend or crush them up)

5oz Butter / Margarine

A few drops of Almond Extract



Pre-heat oven to 180C 375F Gas.5

Grease two baking trays


How to Make

Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl

Rub in the butter or margarine

Add the Extract and mix well.

Bring it together using your hands. (a little flour on your hands helps the mixture not stick to your fingers)

Roll out on a flat surface quite thinly

Using a star-shaped cutter, cut out the stars

Place the stars on the baking trays

Decorate the stars with what ever sprinkles your little ones want. Bruiser chose silver pearls because they are twinkly
