Time 45


  • 375
  • 155
    castor sugar
  • 525
    cake flour
  • 225
    Astros or Smarties
  • 600
    icing sugar, sifted
  • 6
    food colouring of your choice
  • 10
    silver balls or coloured vermicelli, to decorate


Oven temperature: 200°C
1. Beat the butter and castor sugar until light. Sift the flour and mix into the butter mixture until it comes together. Roll out onto a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 2mm. Cut out round, flower or heart shapes with cookie cutters.

2. Place two or three sweets of the same colour in the centre of half of the cutouts. Cover with the remaining cutouts and press the edges to seal. Place on greased baking trays and bake in a preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

3. Make the glacé icing by mixing about 50ml hot water with the icing sugar until it forms a thick, smooth mixture. Divide the icing into two or three bowls and add a small amount of food colouring to each bowl. Use the back of a teaspoon to spread icing onto each biscuit. Decorate with silver balls or coloured vermicelli.
