270 g plain flour
60 g Siúcra Icing sugar
1 tsp of Vanilla Essence
200 g butter or margarine
Red food colouring
Preheat the oven to 175°C.
Mix the ingredients together until they form a dough.
Place half of the mixture in another bowl and add the red food colouring. Do not colour the other half.
Wrap the doughs in cling film and leave them in the fridge for 15 minutes. Roll out both pieces of dough, preferably on baking parchment, placing the red dough over the light−coloured one.
Carefully roll them together from the long end and roll them in the hundreds and thousands.
Leave the dough in the fridge for 15 minutes before cutting it up.
Cut the dough into discs, about 0.5 cm across, and, if desired, place a stick in the middle.
Bake in the centre of the oven for about 8 minutes. Leave the biscuits to cool on a wire rack.
Store in an airtight container.
Here you can find both satisfying and sweet treats for a very happy Easter weekend.
Time for citrus
Is there anything better than to start the morning with homemade marmalade on your toast. Let the season's citrus fruits inspire you.
Inspired by the Japanese breakfast staple, Puffed Pancakes with Strawberries, Cinnamon Syrup and Lemon Cream, served warm and straight from the pan are sure to be a winner with all the family.
Mmm! What could be better than a rich, sumptuous chocolate cake to lift the spirits – either as an indulgent treat or to round off a meal.
Cheesecakes of every kind
How about serving up a creamy, tangy cheesecake rather than a regular cake at your party? Cheesecakes come in many different variations, forms and flavours.
