Butterfly Biscuits. Sweet Treats for a Fairy Birthday Party

11 Apr

These biscuits are so easy to make and are great for children to help with. They love rolling out the dough and decorating them.  We made these for Lily’s fairy birthday party which is in a couple of weeks.  We left some without icing and popped them in the freezer so we can decorate them the day before the party.

Here is the recipe if you want to give them a try.  You can use any cookie cutters to make whatever shapes you like.  The fun is definitely in the decorating though, we had pink icing EVERYWHERE!

6 oz butter

3  1/2 oz caster sugar

One egg yolk

9  1/2 oz plain flour


Cream the butter and sugar together.  Beat in the egg yolk.  Sift in the flour and bring together the dough.

Wrap dough in cling film and put in the fridge for 10 mins before rolling out and cutting.

Bake in the oven at 190 degrees for 10 minutes.

    These look great!!! So sweet and just as fairy as they could be! How did you make the icing? Or is it store bought?

      Thank you! It is just a simple version of Royal Icing (icing sugar and water) and a drop of food colouring.
