For the recipe  Paddy's Vanilla Flag Biscuits

For the Biscuits:

125 g Unsalted Butter (4 ½ oz) Softened
125 g Caster Sugar (4 ½ oz)
1 Egg Yolk
250 g Plain Flour (9 oz)
1 Dr. Oetker Baking Powder Sachet (1 tsp)

300 g Icing Sugar

Paddy's Vanilla Flag Biscuits

Line 3 large baking trays with baking parchment. Place the butter and caster sugar into a bowl and whisk until pale and creamy. Whisk in the egg yolk.


Sieve in the flour and Baking Powder and carefully mix together to make a mixture that resembles a crumble topping. Using your hands, bring the mixture together to form a firm dough. Turn on to a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and pliable.


Roll out the dough to a thickness no greater than 1/2cm (1/4inch). Using a rectangle shaped cutter or a knife, cut out your flag shaped cookies, re-rolling the dough as necessary.


Arrange on the prepared baking trays, prick lightly with a fork and chill for 30 minutes. Ten minutes before baking, preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C Fan, Gas Mark 4).


Bake the cookies for around 10 minutes until firm and lightly golden round the edges. Leave to cool on the baking trays for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


To decorate, prepare the icing sugar with a few tbsp. of warm water. Divide the icing into 3 portions. Keep one portion white. Squeeze a small amount (approx. 4g) of Neon Orange Gel Food Colour to one portion and mix until desired colour is achieved. Add a few drops of Lime Green Gel Food Colour to the other white portion in the same way.


Decorate the flag biscuits with the orange, white and green icing.
