• 115 g unsalted butter, softened
  • 55 g Fairtrade golden caster sugar
  • 180 g plain flour, plus a little extra for dusting
  • 1 tbsp whole milk
  • 1 pack Sainsbury's glitter writing icing
  • 1 tub Sainsbury's party sprinkles, to decorate


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Line 2 baking sheets with baking the butter and sugar together in a bowl, until pale and creamy.

  2. 2

    Sieve the flour into the bowl along with 1 tablespoon of the milk.

  3. 3

    Mix everything together with your hands to make a ball of soft dough - you might need to add the remaining milk.

  4. 4

    Sprinkle a little flour over a table. Divide the dough into 4 pieces and roll out 1 piece to a thickness of about 5mm. Using lettershaped cutters, help your little one cut out letters to spell 'I love mum' or another message. Repeat with the remaining dough

  5. 5

    Using a palette knife, carefully transfer the letters to the baking sheets. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the biscuits are just golden. Leave them to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before putting them on a cooling rack to cool completely.

  6. 6

    Let little ones decorate the biscuits using edible glitter writing icing and decorations. Store in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days, but be careful not to chip the icing!
