COOKING COMPANION


ICED BEE COOKIES


Stripy, smiley and sure to add a buzz to any afternoon tea table, these bee-autiful biscuits are so simple to stamp out and ice using a Lakeland bee cookie cutter!


MAKES 12


FOR THE COOKIES 200g butter, softened 150g caster sugar 2 large egg yolks 400g plain flour 2-4 tbsp milk


TO DECORATE Ready-to-roll white Icing Ready-to-roll yellow Icing Ready-to-roll black Icing


1 Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.


2 Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the egg yolks and sieve in the flour and mix until well combined.


3 Add enough milk to make a soft dough and bring together with your hands. Wrap in cling film and place in the fridge for 20 mins to chill.


4 Remove the dough from the fridge and roll out to approx. 1cm thick. Use a bee cookie cutter to cut out 12 cookies and transfer to the lined baking sheet.


5 Place in the oven and bake for 15 mins or until slightly golden. Leave to cool on a wire rack.


6 To decorate, first roll out the white icing to 5mm thick – it needs to be thick enough to see the detail of the indents between the wings. Use the bee cutter to cut out 12 sets of wings. Brush the


back of the icing with water and place on the cookies, shaping to fit with your fingers, if necessary.


7 Roll out the yellow icing to 5mm thick. Cut out a whole bee shape, then use a craft knife to cut out the head, middle stripe and bottom section, using the score lines left by the cutter as a guide. Brush the back of the icing shapes with water and place on your cookie. Repeat for all 12 cookies.


8 Roll out the black icing to 5mm thick. Cut out a whole bee shape, then use a craft knife to cut out the two black stripes. Attach and repeat as above.


9 To make the eyes, roll small balls of black icing and stick to your bees’ faces with edible glue. Make very small balls from the white icing and use edible glue to attach these to the top of the black ones.
