You will also need:

* 200g/8oz softened butter

* 150g/6oz caster sugar

* 2 large egg yolks

* 400g/14oz plain flour, plus extra for dusting surface

* Grated zest of 1 lemon or 1 tsp vanilla extract/other flavouring of your choice

* 2-4 tbsp milk

Method:

Measure the butter and sugar into a bowl along with the zest and beat together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolks. Sieve in the flour and add enough milk to give a fairly soft dough. Bring together, using your hands then wrap and chill in the fridge for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line two baking trays with baking parchment.

Step 1

Remove from the fridge and roll out on a lightly floured work surface to a thickness of about 5mm/¼in. Cut out your shapes and bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until pale golden-brown.

 

Cloud: Use the flower cutter to cut out flower shapes from the dough. Use a ruler and a pizza wheel to cut each flower in half to make 2 clouds.

 

Star: Use the star cutters to cut out the dough.

 

Moon: Use the 8cm round cutter to cut out discs from the dough. Remove a section from the disc using the 6.5cm round cutter to make a crescent moon shape.

 

Mountain: Use a ruler and pizza wheel to cut out tall triangle shapes – (small: 7cm at base x 9cm tall) (large: 9cm wide x 12.5cm tall) cut out paper templates so that you can use them to cut out the icing too.

Step 2
Transfer the biscuits to a cooling rack. When the biscuits are completely cold use a variety of coloured fondant icing to decorate the biscuits.
