Ingredients

  • A tiny pinch of salt

  • 4 oz Light Brown Sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1.5 -2 tbsp Golden Syrup

  • For The Topping
  • 250 g White Fondant Icing

  • 1 tbsp Apricot Jam

  • Icing sugar to roll out and to decorate

Directions

  • Pre heat your oven to 160 Degrees
  • Put flour, baking powder, caster sugar,salt and butter in your mixing bowl and gently rub together with your fingertips so that the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs
  • Add the egg, golden syrup and vanilla essence and mix together with a fork
  • With your hands gently knead together to make a ball
  • Put the mixture in a freezer bag and place in the fridge for 25-30 minutes
  • Take out the cookie dough and sprinkle your surface with icing sugar
  • Roll out the dough quite thickly and cut out as many star shapes as you can with the mixture
  • Place on the baking trays lined with baking paper and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes
  • When cooked- take out of oven and place on a cooling rack and let your cookies cool completely
  • Use some icing sugar to roll out your white icing- using the same star shaped cookie cutter cut out enough stars to go on each of your biscuits
  • Brush the cookies with a little apricot jam and stick on the fondant stars
  • Brush a little water onto the spikes of the fondant stars and stick on a silver ball on each spike
  • Sprinkle a bit of edible little or spray onto the cookies
