I made biscuits

When we got home from my first wedding dress fitting I decided to make some biscuits. 
I originally wanted to make them for Valentine's Day, but I'm always so far behind, that today became the day.


I used a basic biscuit recipe. 

175g Plain Flour 
100g of butter/margarine (I used Stork)
50g Caster Sugar

I'm loving my blog so much at the moment that I decided to make a picture instructional post.
Take this as a warning... this will be a photo heavy post.
(I personally love photo heavy posts)

Step 1

Collect your ingredients and preheat the oven to 150°C.
We have to guess the temperature as all the numbers have rubbed off our oven, thanks to flash.

Step 2

Weigh your ingredients referring to the recipe



Step 3

Mix together both the margarine and the caster sugar until light and fluffy.
Make sure you do this whilst wearing your PJs and smiling at a camera.

Add the flour gradually. I stir this into the mixture. I'm sure you could whisk it but you're aiming to create a dough texture, so I'm not sure how well that would work out.
Once the mixture is too thick to stir, get messy and work with your hands...

... and kneed the dough to form a ball.

Roll out the dough and use your preferred cutter to cut out your biscuits.
We don't own a rolling pin, so we used a very clean can of hairspray. 
You could also use a bottle of wine.
If the dough sticks to your 'rolling pin' sprinkle the dough with a bit of flour which will prevent it from sticking.

(We seem to have lost our steps somewhere... but I'm sure you're still following)

Grease & flour your baking tray, add the biscuits, and bake for roughly 25 minutes at 150C
Keep an eye on them, you don't want to burn the poor things.

Once ready, place on a baking tray and leave to cool.
This really won't take to long.
Luckily.
I'm so impatient. 

Here comes the fun part

Decorate however you want.

Here are my creations.

Be careful not to eat them all at once.. it's very difficult.

And to all my lovely followers, especially the one who leave such sweet comments...
