Here’s another batch of food I took to the party. They look so vibrant and appealing that everyone will want one. Both adults and kids of all ages loved them and went back for more…and more…and more!
I used this basic recipe but divided it into two and made one half in one bowl and the other in another bowl.
In one of the bowls (before I added the flour) I added some red food colouring gel and in the other, blue gel (the gel is so much better than the ‘normal’ liquid food colouring, as you only need a tiny bit to make the vivid colour)
When the dough is made and has been in the fridge for a bit, divide both balls of dough into two
Taking one half of the red, roll it into a rectangle on a floured surface. Then next to it roll out the blue to the same shape and size
Put one on top of the other. Roll gently so they merge slightly
Gently roll into a sausage
Carefully cut into thin biscuits
Repeat with the other halves of the dough
Cook at gas mark 4, on a grease proofed tray for approx 12 minutes
This picture shows how bright the are. They taste a bit like shortbread and look cool!
