Farmy Friends Biscuits

Farmy Friends Biscuits


-½ tsp unflavoured gelatin
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 tsp glucose syrup
- 250g icing sugar (plus extra for rolling)
- Strawberry essence
- Pink food colouring
- Edible marker pens
- Farm animal cookie cutters
- Clear plastic gift bags
- Silver twist ties


1. Start with your glucose syrup in a pan on a low heat.
2. Add your water and gelatine. Keep on the heat until the gelatine has just dissolved – then take it off the heat and give it a stir.
3. Transfer your mixture to a large bowl along with 1/3 of your icing sugar.Mix it all together until combined.
4. Add the next 1/3 of your icing sugar and mix until combined again.
5. Then add a couple of drops of strawberry essence and pink food colouring.
6. Add the last of your icing sugar and keep mixing until you have a firm dough.
7. Sprinkle some icing sugar out on a really clean workbench and start kneading out the dough until it’s shiny. Once it’s thin enough, use your cookie cutter shapes to cut out animals (or whatever shapes you like).
8. Transfer your shapes onto a tray lined with baking paper. Using your edible markers, write nice messages on your creations.

Here are a few message ideas if you make animal shapes:
- ‘You’re Baaa-utiful’ on a sheep
- ‘See ewe soon!’ on a sheep
- ‘Horsing around’ on a horse
- ‘I herd it’s the holidays!’ on a cow
- ‘I’m snout-ta here!’ on a pig
- ‘Something to squeal about’ on a pig

Other ideas:
- I love you!
- Happy holidays
- Miss you already
