- 100 g caster sugar, (you can make your own by milling raw sugar 10 sec / sp 9)
- 125 g Butter
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 300 g plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 15 g full cream milk
- 2 egg whites
- 300 g icing sugar
- food colouring of choice
Preheat oven to 180 degrees
Cream 125g butter, 100g caster sugar and ½ tsp of vanilla extract together, 30 sec / sp 5
Add one egg and mix 20 sec / sp 4
Add 300g plain flour, 1tsp baking powder and 15g milk and mix sp 5 until combined. Then knead for 1 min.
Take dough out of bowl and roll out between two sheets of Greaseproof paper or Thermomat until dough is about 5mm thick.
Refrigerate for half an hour (this will help the dough retain its shape in the oven).
After half an hour take dough out and cut with star or circle shaped cutter
Cook in medium oven (180 degrees fan forced) for 10 - 12 minutes. Let cool on cooling rack.
While biscuits are cooling make icing.
Place two egg whites in bowl with butterfly whisk, at 4 min / sp 3 / 50 deg then gradually add 300g icing sugar until all combined.
To decorate, cover your star or circle biscuit with icing, then use a piping bag or a zip lock bag with a small hole in the corner to pipe a dot in the centre then 2 circles around it in a different colour.
Get a toothpick and draw it from the dot in the centre, through the circles to the outside edge of the biscuit, on the star do this until you have done one for each point. And you have a spider web!
This icing will set firm and can be piped very easily.
You can add 1 tsp lemon juice to icing to give it a slightly tangy flavour
