  • 1/2 tsp.

    baking powder

  • 225 g

    plain flour, plus extra to dust

To decorate
  • 500 g

    royal icing sugar

  • Red food colouring paste

You will also need
  • Christmas biscuit cutters, we used ones from dotcomgiftshop.com

  • Piping bags and nozzles

  • Silver dragees

Directions

  1. Beat butter, sugar and golden syrup in a large bowl with a handheld electric whisk until pale and fluffy. Next, beat in the egg, vanilla and zest. Sift over flour and baking powder, mix until just combined, then tip on to a clean work surface and bring together with your hands. Wrap in clingfilm and chill for at least 30min (up to 24hr).
  2. Line two large baking sheets with baking parchment. Lightly flour a work surface and roll out dough to 5mm (1/4in) thick. Stamp out Christmas shapes, re-rolling trimmings as needed. Arrange biscuits on prepared sheets, spacing a little apart. If you are planning on hanging the biscuits, make a 5mm (1/4in) hole in the top of each biscuit with a skewer. Chill for 30min, until firm.
  3. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan) mark 4. Bake biscuits for 15min until lightly golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. For the icing, sift icing sugar into a large bowl and, using a handheld electric whisk on lowest speed, beat in 5-6tbsp of the lemon juice (mixed with cold water if not enough) to make a thick, smooth icing. Beat for a further 3-4min until shiny - it should have the consistency of toothpaste. Spoon 1/3 into a separate bowl – this is your outline icing. If you like, divide outline mixture in half again and dye one batch red with food colouring. Transfer outline icings to separate piping bags fitted with fine nozzles. Whisk a little more water (2-3tbsp) into the 2/3 icing remaining icing bowl, until you have a thick but pourable consistency. This is your flood icing. Again, if you like, dye half of this red in a separate bowl. Transfer to 2 separate piping bags.
  5. To flood decorate sections, or the whole biscuit, pipe an unbroken line using the outline icing (including making a circle around the ribbon hole, if made). Snip off the end of a flood icing bag and fill the space within the outline. Use a toothpick to nudge the icing into any gaps (store piping bags in bowls with the cut end facing up while you’re working). Allow to set (see GH Tip) before decorating further with outline icing and silver dragees. Repeat with remaining biscuits. Leave to set firm.
  6. If you’ve made holes, thread through ribbon and hang.

To store

Once set, store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. The biscuits will soften faster if exposed to the air.

GH Tip

To harden the flood icing faster, return biscuits icing-up on a baking sheet to an oven preheated to its lowest setting (about 110°C/90°C fan/mark1/4) for 30min or until icing is set hard.
