    Golden star biscuits

    Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus chilling

    Cooking time: 12 minutes

    Makes: 24

    Ingredients

    100g unsalted butter, softened

    100g Waitrose Light Brown Muscovado Sugar

    1 medium Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Egg, lightly beaten

    1 tsp vanilla extract

    275g plain flour

    2 tsp Bart Mixed Spice

     

    TO DECORATE

    250g fondant icing sugar

    Yellow food colour gel

    Cooks Ingredients gold lustre spray 

    Method

    1 Line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment. In a bowl, beat the butter and sugar together with an electric whisk until pale and fluffy. Whisk in the egg and vanilla extract, then sift over the flour and spice. Bring the mixture together, then knead lightly and form into a ball. Wrap and chill for 30 minutes.

    2 Preheat the oven to 180ºC, gas mark 4. Roll out half the dough at a time on a lightly floured surface to the thickness of a pound coin. Using a star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out 24 biscuits and transfer them to the baking sheets. Bake for 10–12 minutes until pale golden. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool.

    3 Sift the icing sugar into a bowl and mix with 2 - 3 tbsp water to make a thick, smooth icing. Spread the icing over the biscuits then add a drop or two of food colouring to the surface of each. Ripple in the colour gently using a cocktail stick then leave to set. Once set, spray with gold lustre.
