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 😉
6oz Self Raising Flour
Pinch of Salt
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
Bake in the oven for approx 15 Minutes.
Leave to cool on a wire rack.
Give them a go. They’re very delicious…
and don’t forget to lick the bowl 😉
