• 150g unsalted butter
  • 175g plain flour
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 1 pack of ready to roll icing
  • 1 jar of apricot jam
  • Colour writing icing, to decorate


  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4.
  2. 2 Rub together the unsalted butter and plain flour in a mixing bowl. Add the caster sugar and bring the mixture together with your hands to form a stiff dough.
  3. 3 Roll out the dough to 0.5cm thickness and cut out circle shapes with a 6cm cutter. You may need to re-roll the trimmings to use up all the dough.
  4. 4 Place on a baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until golden. Leave to cool on the baking tray for a few mins, then carefully transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
  5. 5 Roll out the icing to 0.5cm thickness, then use the same 6cm cutter to cut out icing rounds.
  6. 6 Gently warm about 2 tablespoons of the apricot jam in the microwave. Spread a little of the warm jam over each biscuit to act as glue for the icing, then top with the icing rounds.
  7. 7 Use the writing pens to decorate as desired for a fun and tasty treat.
