2 baking trays covered in baking paper

1 star cookie cutter

Rolling pin


12oz Plain Flour

1tsp Baking Powder

A tiny pinch of salt

4 oz Light Brown Sugar

4 oz Butter

1 egg

1.5 -2  tbsp Golden Syrup

A few drops of Vanilla Essence

For The Topping:

250g White Fondant Icing

Edible sparkles or edible glitter spray

Edible Silver Balls

1 tbsp Apricot Jam

Icing sugar to roll out and to decorate


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

Enjoy with a glass of milk or something a little stronger
