this is a fondant in pink..then followed by royal icing in yellow.


boxed up and ready to give away!

Ingredients:
180g butter(salted), softened
100g fine sugar
zest from 1 lemon
250g Top flour
1 egg

Method:
1. Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy. Add egg to beat.
2. Add lemon zest and fold in flour
3. Mix into a soft dough. Leave it in the fridge for 1 hour.
4. Remove from fridge, roll out dough to 3mm thickness.
5. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutter.
6. Bake in preheated oven 180C for 15 minutes. Remove to cool completely before icing.

Seen above, the cookies are either covered in royal icing or fondant. If you want to use fondant, just spread a thin layer of jam on the cookie before putting the fondant. So that the fondant will stick to the cookie.

Hi Gina!

I was just reading your recipe and had tried one oh-so-similar like 30 minutes ago (how odd!!).

In your recipe you listed down 1 egg, where would you add that? My recipe didn't have an egg, interested to know, thanks!

Very Happy

sorry..the egg is added after the butter and sugar.

The egg, being liquid, helps to bind the ingredients together and gives it that nice crispy crunch after its baked. Its a recipe I used for my classes. yummy

Hi Gina,

wouldn't the cookie lose it's crispness if we pack it this way?
